If I create one or two additional hardware profiles and manipulate or change
services in one hardware profile, how are the services affected in the other
hardware profile(s)? Are the changes consistent globally or just per
hardware profile?

So if services A, B, and C are currently enabled (automatic or manual) in
both hardware profiles one and two and I disable all of them in hardware
profile 1 then they should still be enabled (automatic or manual) in
hardware profile 2, correct ?

Oracle. If I were to install oracle, can I have it automaticly start on one
hardware profile (default) and entirely disabled on another hardware profile
?

Hardware profiles are, how shall I put this, about hardware, ie. devices and
not services, although some services might well be making use of certain
devices. However that only means that when the device is not present the
service will have a hard time performing it's function.
eg. the Server service will have some trouble when the network device (NIC)
is not present or disabled.
