Unable to fetch BIOS configuration details

Hi All,

unable to fetch the bios configuration information and service provider information in centos 5 using dmidecode command.

ServiceProvider=`dmidecode -s system-product-name |awk '{print $1}'`

BIOS_Configuration=`dmidecode | grep "BIOS Information" -A10 | grep -e "Version:" -e "Vendor:" -e "Release Date:" |awk -F ":" '{print $2}'|xargs | sed 's/\n/,/g'`

is there any command available to find the same.

Nothing is displaying for dmidecode command in centos 5.

Isn't this the same AWS server in this thread?

Why would you think you can get detailed hardware information in a virtual server in AWS?
