Default Detection Method (BIOS Date)

The Default Detection Method allows Enhansoft to identify Apple, Microsoft and unknown computer manufacturers. 

Eventually unknown manufactures may either become fully supported manufacturers or they may be identified as new White Box manufacturers. 

The Default Detection Method is similar to the White Box method as described in the previous section. WIR calculates the most likely hardware warranty start date for a computer by using a variety of methods. Based on this data, WIR will then set a 1-year hardware warranty end date. 

The Data Source Check will be temporarily set to 100 or greater. This will allow the computer to fall within the WIR query (WIR_Query) and therefore WIR will check its warranty details at a later date. 

This method is also used in the case of network issues.
