    Does anyone know what I could use as a unique identifier
    for a particular installation of the OS. I need to
    idenitify the actual installation as opposed to the box,
    so that If there were multiple os's I can tell which one
    it came from.

    Any GUID or anything created on an installation ?

    rgds,
