<sysinfo type="smbios"> <bios> <entry name="vendor">LENOVO</entry> </bios> <system> <entry name="manufacturer">Microsoft</entry> <entry name="product">Windows11</entry> <entry name="version">22H2</entry> </system> <baseBoard> <entry name="manufacturer">LENOVO</entry> <entry name="product">20BE0061MC</entry> <entry name="version">0B98401 Pro</entry> <entry name="serial">W1KS427111E</entry> </baseBoard> <chassis> <entry name="manufacturer">Dell Inc.</entry> <entry name="version">2.12</entry> <entry name="serial">65X0XF2</entry> <entry name="asset">40000101</entry> <entry name="sku">Type3Sku1</entry> </chassis> <oemStrings> <entry>myappname:some arbitrary data</entry> <entry>otherappname:more arbitrary data</entry> </oemStrings> </sysinfo>
To add custom QEMU arguments to a VM open /etc/pve/qemu-server/<vmid>.conf
And specify the arguments with args:
args: -smbios type=0,vendor=LENOVO

To convert a libvirt XML file to QEMU arguments, use virsh domxml-to-native.
