activate Windows or deactivate secure Mode

I have a new NUC, there is a Windows 10 Home S installed, but not activated. I want to install my Software. That's not possible on a Windows 10 Home S. I have to switch of the secure Mode. That's not possible, because the OS ist not activated. To activate I need the Licence Key. To get the Licence key I have to run Windows Powershell and read the Windows Licence key fron the Bootrecord. That's not possible, because Powershell ist not allowed to run in a Windows 10 S. This seems to me, a dead Lock. Is there any Way to deactivate the Secure Mode. Why is windows 10 in my NUC not activated?
