After creating the virtual machine, go to Edit Settings / Options / General and select “Configuration Parameters”

Add a row, paste “smbios.reflecthost” as the name, and true as the value

Be aware that the virtual machine must be shut down to make this change.

** There is a similar procedure where you have to add smbios.ReflectHost = “TRUE” in the vmx file of the VM. Result will be the same.
