Ticket #4462 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Vbox needs to support DMI Chassis response

VirtualBox supports several DMI BIOS settings such as Vendor, Product, etc. VBox also needs to support the DMI chassis/Enclosure setting. Vbox currently returns the empty string. VMWare returns a 1 (for other). Other numbers relate to chassis types such "tower" "laptop" "slim", etc.
We need this in order to make our VirtualBox instances look like VMWare instances to our Corporate Windows installer, otherwise we are stuck with using VMWare until the enclosure/chassis DMI query can return an actual value.
Here is an example VBS script: http://www.nbtnet.newboundary.com/forum/Attachment6.aspx
