I'm working with the following typical example of WMI hardware searching, but only need the FIRST harddrive instead of the whole array. The following code is all I can find.

ManagementClass mc = new ManagementClass("Win32_PhysicalMedia");
            foreach (ManagementObject mo in mc.GetInstances())
                if (mo["SerialNumber"] != null)

@"Select * From Win32_PhysicalMedia Where Tag = \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0"

Could not get yours to work.

This works for me: @"SELECT * FROM Win32_LogicalDisk where DeviceID = 'C:'");
