Create Windows 10 installation media first, then full retail version

Hello, I recently received all the parts to begin my build, unfortunately, I've exhausted all funds until next payday. Can I used the "Create Windows 10 installation media" for now to see if my build is a success, and then, do a fresh install with a new Windows 10 home retail version on the same drive I used the tool on? After reading the forum, I want to do the right thing by paying for the retail, which someone worked to create in turn it will ease my conscience and to feel much safer.

You can do this, and indeed, Windows has a trial period for such purposes. Just make sure you do buy the license and enter it into Windows.

... do a fresh install with a new Windows ...

No need to install again. Just enter the product activation key from your legit purchase.
