It doesnt seem like you are the only one having this problem.
Everything I have quickly researched indicated that you should just be able to do the backup without any issues as TM will create seperate folders for each Mac.

Perhaps you have to use thier Time Capsule in order to get it to work properly...???

In looking around on the 'net for other information regarding system profiler, I came across a post that mentions time machine backups are linked to the machine's UUID (found in system profiler).
Most Hackintoshs computers use the same UUID as it was set in the emulated bios. On my 10v, it is currently:
But I'm going to change it now. I'll post again with my result if it works, and let you know what I did.

OK, that didn't work, and caused lots of problems, it took me nearly an hour to get my 10v up and running again.
I think what I said is right though, Time Machine backups are related to the UUID. I'm just not sure how to change it.
