Installation of Windows 7 on the IdeaPad 330


I recently bought a Lenovo IdeaPad 330 with the following specs: 

Intel Pentium Silver N5000

AMD Radeon 530 2GB GDDR5


SSD 120 GB

No DVD RW drive

I have installed Windows 10 64bit via a pen drive. The OS has very poor performance and it has almost no compability with older programs or games. I like playing legacy games from years ago , and getting 1 fps in a game from 2007 is just miserable. I updated  my graphics card driver from AMD’s website and I ran an Auslogics Driver Updater on the PC to renew outdated drivers. Nevertheless, the machine has very poor performance compared to my desktop with Win 7 from 6 years ago.

My question is, how can I install Windows 7 because I believe it is the last reliable and stable OS Microsoft has made, is it possible in the first place, and with these specs - do I have driver compability with my hardware.

I would prefer not reinstalling the computer if I can fix the problems with the current OS.

Thanks a lot.
