Ryzen 5 2600x compatible with Windows 7 ?


Could I install Windows 7 (Disc) on a new gaming rig that comes with Windows 10 Trial?

Processor is Ryzen 5 2600x.

The system would only have windows 7 on it for a few mins, then I would use the backdoor route to upgrading to Win10 for free (I have upgraded my current old desktop from 7 to 10 for free the other day).

I just don't want to damage my new system... but I also don't want to drop £100 on Win10 when I can get it for free.

Thank in advance for your help
