How to check server is VM or Physical in Windows?

A simple systeminfo can explore more more in windows. But using findstr we could get more relevant result.

I tired a simple cmd command in 2 machine and what i got are:

C:\Users\Administrator>systeminfo| findstr /i model
System Model:              Virtual Machine
                           [01]: Intel64 Family 6 Model 63 Stepping 2 GenuineInt
el ~2397 Mhz

C:\Users\Administrator>systeminfo | findstr /i model
System Model:              B85M-D3H
                           [01]: Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3 GenuineInt
el ~3101 Mhz

Hope you can understan
d the result and can distinguish both physical and virtual server.
