    Reinstall Windows 2008 Server and choose Standard Edition instead of Core Edition, or whatever edition your licensed to install in a VM. Each physical license comes with a number of virtual licenses.

    Windows Server 2008 Standard: one
    Windows Server 2008 Enterprise: four
    Windows Server 2008 Datacenter: unlimited

    SBS is based on Windows Server 2008 Standard, so should allow for one virtual license, but I could not get confirmation on that.
