Windows 7 on ryzen

So recently my dad needed a new workstation so he decided to go with ryzen. Now he wants to do a windows 7 install then upgrade to window 10. I was wondering is there any supported iso to complete said install.

He gets an error message mid install saying:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prvent damage to your computer. if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,restart your computer. if this screen appears again. follow these steps: the bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. please contact your system vendor for an updated BIOS. Technical information: ***STOP:0x000000A5 (0x0000000000000011,0x0000000000000008,0xFFFFFA80064086C8,0x0000000020120913)

motherboard: MSI b350

Processor ryzen 3 2200g

... windows 7 install then upgrade to window 10.

Unless your dad intends to create a custom Win7 USB flash drive, just buy Win10 full retail version outright.

If intent on upgrade route, check the "MSI b350" website for any utility to create a bootable Win7 USB.

Just checked the MSI website.
Tell him to use the MSI Smart Tool utility listed under operating systems Win8 64 and Win8.1 64

we have a key for win 7 that's why we are going to do the win 7 to 10 upgrade.

I believe the free upgrade from 7 to 10 has ended.
