Any other solutions besides GenSMBIOS to create an SMBIOS?

Hello Hackintoshers,

I'm new to the Hackintosh scene and I need help! I've come across a problem creating an SMBIOS/System Identifier. Based off the OpenCore Vanilla Guide; I'm supposed to make an SMBIOS using GenSMBIOS to generate one. Every time I generate a SMBIOS (for iMac14,1), the serial number comes out as invalid/not a serial number when I enter it on Apple's Check Coverage website. I have done this more than 20 times, and I still get the same result. The guide says I need to have a serial number that shows up as "Purchase Date not Validated" when entered on the Check Coverage website. What can I do at this point? Is it okay for me to continue on with an invalid serial number? Is there another application I can use to get a working one?

Thank you all so much.
