I am looking to purchase a HP Prolient Server for a small office…
Long story short… what would be a good practice for downloading, purchasing, installing and activating? I have done this before about 8 months ago, however I ended up signing up through Microsoft for purchasing, then downloaded the installer and key from Microsoft after I purchased it. I want to go a different route this time as I don’t want their license associated with the Microsoft Account I had created for our company.
I visited Microsoft’s website and I see the 2019 Standard ISO has a free evaluation version. Is the information I’d type into this relevant… can it just be gibberish? Also, from this point, if I use this evaluation method, can I then just purchase a 2019 Standard 16 Core license key from Amazon, apply that as the activation once installed, update the operating system and be good to go?

I don’t want to download and install an older release version of 2019 if I buy it on Amazon, I want the latest release version installed. Also, I see some keys for around $300 on Amazon, but Microsoft’s website has it at about $950. Is there a difference between the two other than pricing? What’s the catch?
If you have another recommendation process, I am interested.
Thank you for your time.
