ryzen 3 2200g and windows 7 (temporarily)

I bought 3 ryzen 3 2200g chips before I found out that they do not support Windows 7.  I have seveal unused Windows 7 licensces that I need to use.  Once Windows 7 is installed, I can upgrade them free of charge at Microsoft.  But in order to do that I need to install Win 7 first.  Is there any way to make that happen with the ryzen 3 2200g.  I don't care too much about complete support, just enough to let me upgrade them to Win 10.  As  a last resort, is there a chip that will fit on the asrock a320m-hdv motherboard and let me install, upgrade and then switch back to the ryzen?  Would that even work?  Thanks,

Or maybe this still works,

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, NM790 2TB, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro., LC27G55T..

Try to Install Windows 10 with clean install without product key and then go to 

Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation and give Windows 7 Activation key
