If you don't have a license key for Windows 10, you're not going to be able to activate the OS. If you're looking for options as to how you can pirate the OS, sorry we can't help you with that front either.

FYI, you can actually use your system while the OS is not activated, it doesn't have any drawbacks, unless you want to tinker under the hood of the OS.

He installed Win 10 and left it unactivated.
Which is where you are now.

You can either purchase a valid WIn 10 license, or leave it like it is, and live with the small restrictions.

You can buy windows keys for ~£3 on eBay. Once you receive it, and activate it, open CMD and type "slmgr -dli" if it says OEM channel or RETAIL channel then you are good. However, if it says VOLUME or KMS or something like that, you will have to tell the seller they gave you a volume key, and they will very kindly refund or replace, otherwise you could use eBay money back guarantee.

Well, this is between you, him, and Microsoft.
There is no magical Activation routine, other than inputting a valid license key.
