Very simple if by hostname you mean computer name:
Ren "system.txt" "%computername%_system.txt"

If you mean hostname (which in generally rare circumstances COULD be different from the computer name) then it's SLIGHTLY more complicated:
for /f %%a in ('hostname') do set Hostname=%%a
ren "system.txt" "%hostname%_system.txt"
