Download the Microsoft Media Creation Tool here and run it: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

You will need a USB drive that is at least 4 GB or a DVD that is at least 4GB. Follow the prompts of the tool. The Tool will copy the files over. Plug the USB drive/DVD into the PC you want to install on. Go into BIOS and changed the boot order so that the USB drive is first. Sometimes BIOS will detect bootable medial and automatically do it. Restart the PC. The Microsoft Windows 10 installation program should run. Follow the prompts and boom bam bop you are done.

Use of Windows must be done with a legitimate product key.

Per Microsoft:

You are authorized to use this software only if you are properly licensed and the software has been properly activated with a genuine product key or by other authorized method.

For more information please see: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Useterms/Retail/Windows/10/UseTerms_Retail_Windows_10_English.htm

Incorrect. The only legal way to run Windows is with a legitimate license. You can buy an OEM license and that will get rid of the water mark and allow you to personalize Windows, but the license is locked to the motherboard. A Windows 10 Home Retail license is $139 from Microsoft. Windows 10 Pro is a waste of money for most people (as is Windows, but that's a different story). If you don't want to pay for your OS (or deal with Microsoft) run a Free (gratis) OS.

legitimate

Legitimate, as in "not bought with stolen funds and not some weird cracked version." People should be buying their Windows license from a real store (or Microsoft) at retail price. Or, of course, there's another option: they could dump Windows and use a free (gratis and/or libre) OS and actually learn how their computer works.

You can obtain a non cracked version of windows and still have it be illegal.
