Many Windows users still use the older versions of Windows OS like Windows 7 or 8. If you are among those and want to test Windows 10 by installing it on another partition on your PC, we recommend you not purchase the Windows 10 license key. Once you use it for a while and are satisfied, you can buy and activate the official key. In simpler terms, you can install the product key on a separate partition of your system to preview Windows 10, and you won’t have to disturb other files.

Is it illegal to install Windows 10 without having a valid activation key?
You do not have to worry about the legality of the feature since it is provided to you by Microsoft itself. It is complete, so you can read, understand, and take the time to decide and purchase the key. However, it would help if you were careful that installing Windows 10 successfully without a product key won’t automatically activate your copy of Windows 10. It would help if you used a legal (OEM product key). Also, you won’t be allowed to use 100% of the features on your system. It would help if you got the officially licensed product key to use all the features.
How do I install Windows 10 without entering a product key?
Step 1: To get started, create a bootable USB flash drive of Windows 10 and install Windows 10 from it.
Step 2: During the process, a pop-up window on your screen asks you to enter a product key; click on the link “I don’t have a product key” to continue installing Windows 10 without any valid product key.
Once the process is complete, it will activate your copy of Windows 10 on your system. Be careful that you don’t enter the product key that you have used on some other computer. If you do that, Microsoft will deactivate your license once you go online.
