I think you would be able to install Windows 7 on this one.

Only 1 left in stock though, better hurry!

Technically it supports Windows 7 because it meets the minimum requirements. However you might have trouble installing it because you'll need to find an Nvme driver for the Nvme pci-e 3.0 ssd. Also you'll have to use the patch that gets you past the Windows update problem with 7th gen and up CPUs. So yeah it'll support it, but it might take some work getting it all installed.

Found this one though that actually comes with Windows 7 pro. There is also only one left of that one though. Just look for 6th gen and lower CPUs and an SSD that isn't Nvme and those models will absolutely officially support Windows 7.

I'm pretty sure I'm correct in this. Scott, please correct me if I'm wrong.
