Can you, no probably not and you really shouldn't even if you could. There are no security updates for Windows 7 anymore nor is software going to support it going forward.

Also Windows 7 doesn't support anything newer than a gen 6 Intel CPU. That laptop is gen 7 so it's very unlikely to work.


Do not do it. I repeat, Do not do it.
Windows 7 is not supported anymore.
You would not get security updates for it and Apps on Windows 7 will start becoming incompatible with your desktop.
Instead use Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
I do not know whether the newer Chips support Windows or not.

You would have a tough time if you install Windows 7 on a newer PC.
