Other than that you allocate and deallocate at will without any changes to the Serial Number. This is all well and dandy until you have to move the install to another server, for whatever reason. I copied parts of this script from several of my options to get you exact examples for dell and virtual machines but you may need to debug it a bit since I haven't run this as a whole. Regardless, it's very useful to be able to get a unique identifier like this that both the host and guest agree on, as it allows some really nice automation and customization of the imaging process. This capability requires no changes to existing images and will just start working.
I test Surface devices regularly, so this is targeted towards Surface, but could be modified easily to do other hardware virtual or physical with pretty little effort. Heres 1 example, I work in education. All of these Codes are two digit number representing our different codes for locations.

Changing the serial number of the hard drive by this I mean in the firmware, not just the label can also result in issues hardware bound software. It's like having a keyboard plugged into the server in our datacenter but in the comfort of your office or home. .
