While the process is running, the PC may be restarted several times. Make sure the device is connected to a reliable power source. Unexpected shut down would interfere with the process and potentially damaging important files.

The PC will be turned on automatically with a refreshed operating system. For most laptops, the Windows 10 license is already there onboard. While assembled computers may need to login to connect with the Microsoft account.
