This pre-release version of windows 2008 will expire in 0 hours

I have installed Windows Server 2008 Datacenter SP2, Build 6002

I am getting the message above every 2 hours after which my computer reboots.  My understanding is that this version of Windows Server is a prerelease version and I need to upgrade to the latest version.

My question is whether there is some way of upgrading in-place or will in need to completely rebuild my machine?

its expired and you need to buy the licence and if you still want to continue using an trial version which is for 180 days i think then you have to perform an new install
