On sale from a reputable retailer such as the ones listed on this site. You can also use Win10 for free if you need time to save some cash, you can download the installer to a usb drive directly from Microsoft's website.

If you do not activate Windows, the only differences are the following:

  1. Watermark on the lower right-hand corner saying Activate Windows
  2. You cannot use anything under Personalization e.g. change wallpaper, accent colors, lock screen, themes, etc. All options are there, they are just grayed out and inaccessible You still get all updates and patches, and there is no time limit on how long you can use it for free. If you use Microsoft Edge or go through file explorer and right click on an image, you can still set it as a desktop background even without activating Windows.

For installing Windows, Paul did a good video here going over the first five things he does with a new build, installing the OS is one of them.

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.
