Should I buy Windows 10 Pro or a universal product key will be enough?

I have a working old scanner Mustek 2448TA Pro and a computer with Windows 10 Home running.

On the official Mustek site there are no new drivers for my scanner and they recommend using Hyper-V for making a virtual machine Windows XP.

Hyper-V works only with Windows 10 Pro. I don't need Windows 10 Pro for any other purposes.

Can I use a universal product key to install Windows 10 Pro and make a virtual machine for a few days only for inslallation the old drivers for my scanner? Will my scanner work after this period if I won't buy a key for Windows 10 Pro?

Legal licensing questions are better directed towards your reseller's trained licensing specialist or ask microsoft directly. Any anonymous forums replies are opinions at best and in no way legally binding.
