You don't.

Microsoft 365 business plans allow you to download media to *UPGRADE* properly licensed and activated versions of win7 or 8 pro to Win10 pro. But those would already be valid and activated before the upgrade.

Microsoft 365 Enterprise licenses will seamlessly change a properly activated windows 10 pro machine to windows 10 enterprise whenever a user with an M365 license logs in.  If they every get unlicensed for M365, the machine silently reverts to pro.

So regardless of the M365 license type, "activation" doesn't happen in the traditional sense. The machine needs to already be activated and in a valid state to take advantage of the M365 benefit associated with that license.
