Licensing question

So I recently installed Virtual Box on my Mac, and it came w 90 day trial version of Windows 7 Enterprise. It works great, but I can't for the life of me figure out what happens when the trial ends. Can I purchase a license for the software I currently have, or do I have to reinstall a single user version? I haven't been able to find an information anywhere.

I believe Windows 7 Enterprise is in effect Windows 7 Pro but for a limited time of use. You can buy a Home basic, Home Premium or Pro & it will accept the key & activate disable whatever features of the windows that are not part of the license but you can't buy Ultimate because it would require more software.

I might be wrong but from my understanding that's what you can do. Or, go on ebay & find a cheap OEM version of windows 7.

Thanks, I will look into this.
