Windows 7 can be installed on some of the newer business PCs. There are some requirements and settings you should be aware of.
- First, you cannot install Windows 7 on a computer with a 7th generation processor.
- You'll need to either change the TPM version on the PC or install a hotfix from Microsoft.
- You must use legacy mode (non-UEFI) in the BIOS.
- You need your own copy of Windows 7 and a license for Windows 10 Professional.

If you have an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 WiFi adapter, you may not be able to use it if there is no working Wireless Button Driver for Windows 7 for your model.
Using a USB WiFi adapter is the current workaround.
Replacing with a different PCIe adapter might also be possible but I have not investigated that option further. There might be complications related e.g. to the antennae, antenna connectors etc.
