do you not have the old windows 10 key? it should be tied to your motherboard or on your account but if it does ask you for the key again the old key should work.

if you are using the media creation tool on the computer without a usb drive obviously select update

If all the hardware is exactly the same, the same key will work.

If it's a fresh install, just re-run it & remove all existing partitions as part of the install..

Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

As long as you use the same Windows login, you won't need the windows key - keep it to hand, nonetheless.
