E590 - Missing Machine Type, SN, and UUID


My system recently had the motherboard replaced on it. Post message says that the UUID, machine-type, and SN are invalid or missing. 

There are several topics I looked at to inject SN/machine type but none of those has worked on this model. I checked the BIOS update utility package for this model and even made a bootable USB key from the package but gives me no options to inject SN or anything else.


Anyone have any idea?

If it was an authorized warranty servicer, they should fix it using the maintenance disk.  If someone else did it, you need to take it to a dealer or servicer.  The maintenance disk is not available to the general public.
