Product activation could take unpredictable time

Windows Server Standard license
TTT sent an instruction to activate the product. It starts with Evaluation copy Installation.
It does not say "If you have Evaluation edition installed on your server and would like to apply license then...."
Instead, it has "Having Troubles with Installation/Activation?".
Well, must I call moving Edition from Evaluation to Standard as a "Trouble"? Not sure.

Next, when I run DISM command as instructed in "Having Trouble..." section, I was unexpectedly waited for ~25 minutes looking at ""Removing package Microsoft-Windows-ServerStandardEvalEdition" 10% progress.
There were no warning or guidance that user may face such wait time. If I'd knew that, I may have planned the out of hours activation. But no, there is no warning, nor the any brief note on this. Just that:
"Open up the command prompt as administrator and run the command below providing the retail product key in the XXX fields.
DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula
You will then be prompted to restart. After the initial restart, restart once more to complete the process"

"You will then" - that "THEN" you may wait for long time!
