Questions about OEM certification

Asked by Bob Gobeille

I would like to know more about OEM certification. Hewlett Packard currently has a relationship to certify our ProLiant line. My inquiry is about our consumer desktops and laptops. I recall a Ubuntu live cd that was used for this. It was nice and simple, and quick. Just boot off the USB and read the report and (optionally) send it to Canonical. Is this all there is to it for laptop/desktops? Please tell me what it takes to get updated.
