Need Help Please

I just bought this online. First of all (stupid question), this is a disk right? Second, my case doesn't have a 5.25" drive bay, so what do I do, do I have to purchase it right from microsoft or get a usb? Or can I take off the side panel, connect a dvd drive and put in the disk, and then once I am done unplug it? Will it boot correctly if I unplug in once it's downloaded? How should I go about this? I don't mind buying a usb if needed, but I would rather not, and this is a new pc (haven't completed the build yet, I am on a mac right now) so how should I go about this process?

Here's the full build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZFKgJ8 Here's the gpu (overpriced for a 1080 ti but I didn't want to wait for the prices to possibly go down soon) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1330061-REG/evga_11g_p4_6696_kr_geforce_gtx_1080_ti.html

That "Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit" with part number KW9-00140 is a DVD disc.

... can I take off the side panel, connect a dvd drive and put in the disk, and then once I am done unplug it?

Yes.

Would I be able to connect a dvd drive to download it, and then unplug it once it is downloaded?

All you need to download it from Microsoft is your CD key.

Save the ISO to your PC, then use a universal installer to setup on a USB flash drive. No optical drive required, if your system supports booting from USB.

If you already have a DVD drive, yes. Just connect it via SATA data and SATA power and you can use it as a standard DVD player, and then remove it when finished with it. It's what I do, since I don't need it often enough to warrant an integrated disk drive or a modular one.

Download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft's website. It will allow you to make a bootable USB and then you can just use your serial key that came with the DVD.

I have a mac laptop right now, and I am still building my pc, so how would I do that? Will it download to the usb for a pc instead of a mac if I download it on a mac with a usb? How should I do this?
