SBS server 2008 trial license issue

Have been running on a Premium trial version of SBS Server 2008 and all has been fine. I rearmed again on Friday 2/18/2010 all was fine until this morning we come in and find SQL is saying database expired, error 17051.  How do i remedy this?  Everything else is fine, we can access files on server and Exchange is running fine.  SQL seems to have failed to update the trial registration?  I am obtaining a license, but that will take a little while, I guess, as I haven't started looking for a vendor, yet.  How to get SQL back up?  Microsoft is not very responsive....

Although this talks about Windows 2008, have you tried this?

Otherwise, perhaps downloading and installed SQL 2008 Express edition (free) and attaching your databases could get you out of a hole until you have the licensing sorted with MS?

Yeah, it's insane.  I rearmed Friday.  No idea why SQL didn't rearm this time.  Everything else did.  This is nuts.
