Find duplicate computers

We are moving towards Windows 10, this is creating duplicates in SNOW database. I will try to explain the issue.

Computer is inventoried in SNOW as a Windows 7 computer -> the computer is re-installed with Windows 10 (and with a new computer name), so now system contains two objects but in the reality there is only one, the duplicate will be archived in 90 days.


How can I find thease duplicates? Tried BIOS serial, but this is not giving me 100% correct information (according to me). Is there a way to use the MAC address, this unique address would be ideal to filter on?


Does anybody have any idea how to solve this in good way? Suggestions and advice are welcome, thanks
