GPO and WMI filter

Hi!

I recently discovered that there was a GPO in our customers infrastructure.
That GPO made the D:\ drive "Write protected", becuase it didn't have BitLocker.

The customer have only 1 machine model with two disks. It's a Lenovo Thinkpad W540. But they also have to "revisions" of the same model: "20BG0043MN" and "20BG001DMN".

I've now made a new GPO that disables the setting that the other GPO enables, and made a WMI filter for the new GPO.
The WMI filter looks like this:

Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem where manufacturer = "Lenovo" and Model = "20BG0043MN" OR Model = "20BG001DMN"

I've tested it but can't seem to get it to work for the "20BG001DMN" model. It does work for "20BG0043MN".
Is something wrong with the syntax in my WMI ? I've also tried to have two separate Select * queries in the same WMI filter, if you know what I mean? But that didn't work either.

Best regards,
Kenneth
