I ordered a PC without an operating system, as I thought my mate had a disk. turns out he don't have it anymore. whats the easiest way without paying £100 for Windows 10?

Mate mentioned putting his Windows 10 onto a USB then booting it up from that then buying an activation key.. will that work?

New to computers so not 100% sure about everything

Thanks

you can pirate it but I can't tell you how to do so because it's against rules I'm sure but if you type your question into google or youtube I sure you will find out how to do it but avoid virus's etc.

If you have another computer download the Windows Media Creation Tool which allows you to make a bootable Windows 10 drive (Home or Pro) once you do that and install the OS you can get a Key online to Activate it (Windows 10 Home key)

loading his window trial will work then buying your own key and activating. It's just like adding a Windows trial then activating it with your own purchased key.
