So, the reason I wanted to do this is because I'm looking into selling gpus using a subscription based payment plan service, but I'm not sure how to enforce a consequence if payments aren't being made.
No. Just, but... why? Unless you plan on spinning up a data centre housing rentable servers people can stream their games from (similar to PSNow or Google Stadia) I really don't see the value in this for consumers. You can't lock most pieces of hardware with a password unless the manufacturer provides this functionality in the firmware. Hard drives and business class motherboards are the only 2 exceptions in the consumer space, so I mean, you could theoretically "rent" a laptop, but once you give someone the startup password they could just opt to never return it so I really don't understand.
