Hardware IDs
{346511cf-ccee-5c6d-8ee9-3c70fc7aae83}    <- Manufacturer + Family + ProductName + BIOS Vendor + BIOS Version + Major Version + Minor Version
{d7be59e5-29b5-589a-b49d-de7265ef6a7b}    <- Manufacturer + Family + ProductName

In this example, the vendor (Contoso Inc.) would typically use the second hardware ID (d7be59e5-29b5-589a-b49d-de7265ef6a7b) for the value of the HardwareID element in the PackageInfo XML document of the vendor's device metadata package.
