[openstack-dev] [Nova] Are BIOS strings configured in Hyper-V & ESX similar to KVM instantiated VMs?

In a KVM instantiated VM the following signature is present in the BIOS of the VM
The 'Manufacturer ' field in 'System Information' group is set to "OpenStack Foundation"

This helps the VM to identify that it is getting used in an OpenStack environment.

As far as I know XenServer is planning to set the BIOS Strings in IceHouse release.

Is this functionality available in other Hypervisors, especially Hyper-V & ESX?
