    is it necessary to activate windows after the installation of the usb-stick?


    i downloaded windows media creation tool onto my usb-stick. my question now is, if i will install it on my new pc, do i have to activate windows with a key? if so, can i still use windows without having activated it, so just after installation?

    :)
