If you know how to do this in ANY other language other than PHP, then PHP COULD do it.

The sort of C functions I have used to get low level access to a harddrive do not exist in PHP.

Probably the best way is to do the retrieval in C and then call this program from with PHP.

<?php

$sResults = `HDDSerial.exe';

echo $sResults;

?>

The creation of HDDSerial.exe would be via your C compiler.
