Automount using hardware "signature"

New to VeryCrypt. I looked through the posts but could not find an answer. Is it possible to automount a fully encrypted Win7 / Win10 drive based on a hardware signature. By hardware signature I mean a combination of (hash of some sort) based on the CPU, memory, nic, wifi, bluetooth (others ?) configuration and serial numbers.

My objective is to simply prevent access to files when the drive is removed and booted on a secondary system. My systems are locked to a single app which prevents access to the file system but this can be easily circumvented when the drive is connected to a secondary system.

In EFI boot loader I'll add auto login and platform lock parameters in DcsProp.

New version of DcsInt with extra parameters is attached (with description)

To use auto login feature in EFI boot edit EFI\VeraCrypt\DcsProp in ESP and update DcsInt from attachment above
<config key="AutoLogin">1</config>
<config key="AutoPassword">your system password</config>
<config key="PlatformLocked">1</config>
<config key="Random">2</config>
F2 - To change password
F7 - To lock/unlock platform
F8 - To lock/unlock TPM 1.2

Do not forget to create recovery flash! It helps to unlock if something is wrong with TPM configuration or platform lock
