The PIN, like all other Windows Hello authentication methods such as facial recognition and fingerprint reading, relies on the system’s TPM. That’s the only reason it can be secure to use a 4-digit PIN even though a 4-digit password would be brute forced in no time at all.
The problem is that virtual machines do not have access to the hardware TPM and therefore cannot use Windows Hello authentication methods carried over from your host system. In fact, if you were ever to clear your system TPM or use Reflect to restore your system image onto alternate hardware, you would also find that you could no longer use your PIN or any other Windows Hello authentication method until authenticating again with your password.
If you don’t know your password, you should reset it on your actual system and then make a new image to use for viBoot. But you really do need to remember that password in case of scenarios like I just described
