    thanks so much! @ everyone else, i'm planning on getting a legit license when i build a proper gaming pc (soon), this is just to make the transition from mac to windows easier

    you don't need to activate windows for using it. Just install and run it, everything will work except the personalization settings, which doesn't effect the functionality of windows.
    And afaik personalization option is also available for 30 days, but i m not sure about that.
    Still, activation isn't needed for "getting to know windows".
