A way to do this is to use Aruba DHCP Fingerprint: you can create a User Derivation Rule writing the DHCP-Option for specific device or OS and assign it the deny-all role. The DHCP-Fingerprint and the DHCP-Option is explained in this useful guide:

Are you using ClearPass? It too is capable of device fingerprinting and you could block access by the OS of the device that's connecting.
