snapshot-creation with virt-manager

Hi altogether,

I´ve got a question regarding snapshot-creation.

my system (host): Linux/Lubuntu 18.04.4 LTS, 64 bit

I want to achieve the following: installation of WIN (either 8.1 or 10)
in a virtual machine with *qemu/kvm*.
I also have *virt-manager* installed.

There are instructions for a case like this on 
(yet in German).
The procedure described there refers to VirtualBox. I don´t want to use
that but rather *_qemu/kvm/virt-manager_*.

Yet there´s one point worth considering: A bit further on in the
WINDOWS-installation process (yet more or less at the beginning) there
should be
a dialog like this:

"Welcome" ------> "Region. Is it O.K?".

At this point in time WIN hasn´t been been activated yet. There are no
personalized settings and no user account.

This should be the point in time when to create a "save point" or
"backup point" so that when the WIN trial period is over (after 90 days)
the "save point" can be restored and thus there should be another 90
days test period etc.

So basically my question is:

Am I right in assuming that such a "save point" can be created within
*virt-manager* by creating a _*snapshot*_ in the same way as described
Because it´s possible to create such a snapshot from a *running machine*.

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

Rosika :-)
