If it is ELAN hardware then checking for an ELAN system would certainly
cut down a lot on the misdetects. Does the box have other unique
signatures you might detect. Good candidates we've used in the past have

- PCI subvendor identifiers
- BIOS strings (eg does the BIOS contain the sequence 'Technologic
systems 5500' or similar anywhere)
