Windows 10 - Sees a hackintosh motherboard?

Hello - So I have a unique questions. During this whole COVID-19 Situation I decided to give this hackintosh a try. I was able to successfully do a vanilla open core install of Catalina. I have OSX Catalina on a NVME SSD and then I have Windows 10 on a separate NVME SSD. I can boot into either successfully.

BUT when I boot into Windows 10 it says I am running a Acidanthera Mac botherboard instead of my MSI X370 Pro Carbon. The reason I am concerned is that my MSI utility app doesnt let me change LEDs on the motherboard anymore.

CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 1700X
MB - MSI X370 Pro Carbon

Any Thoughts?

Same here with an msi x470 gaming plus max, the only solution i found is to not use Operncore to boot windows otherwise it will change the real motherboard model/serial/etc into windows too:
My bios default is to boot from windows drive (using MS bootloader), so when i want to boot catalina i have to press F11 and select UEFI OS (Opencore bootloader).
