How do I change the 'Operating System Name' for a machine in active directory

How do I edit a machine's OS name identification in active directory??   for example,  I want to change what appears in the field 'operating system' from "hyper-v server" to "windows Server 2008"..     Fyi,  I want to do that to be able to test DPM with Hyper-V server (the core/free edition)

Thanks
