Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation FAQ
-The Windows 8 Enterprise 90-day evaluation is the final Released-to-Manufacturing (RTM) version of Windows 8 Enterprise. This is the same software that is available to Volume Licensing (VL) through Software Assurance (SA) and is feature-complete.
-IT professionals, IT decision makers, and developers who are looking to test their hardware, software, and deployment strategies on Windows 8 can download the Windows 8 Enterprise 90-day evaluation. You must correctly complete a registration form to gain access to the download. Incorrect or incomplete forms will result in the inability to download the Windows 8 Enterprise 90-day evaluation. If you already have access to Windows 8 bits as an MSDN or TechNet subscriber, or as an existing Volume Licensing/Software Assurance customer, you do not need to download this evaluation as you may already have access to the Windows 8 Enterprise bits without an expiration date.
-The trial version 90 days of Windows 8 Enterprise is valid for 90 days after activation. Once the evaluation period expires, your computer will shut down every hour.

The only limit of the evaluation version (that's what Microsoft are calling it) is the 90 day limit.
Thanks. Please tell whether personalisation feature gets limited , and which other feature?
No, it's the full product, just time limited.
Please verify your answer because personalization feature is seen to be disabled on evaluation copy of win 8
I can't find any reference to the evaluation version being different from the commercial Enterprise edition of Windows 8.1 and don't think it's a "feature" of the evaluation version. It is more likely to be a matter of existing policies on your network, using a guest account on Windows or a problem with the installation.
Thanks for searching references. I agree that personalisation is not a feature
