I want to purshase a Lenovo ThinkPad Extreme under windows 10 Pro (as Pre-installed). But after, a want to add a dual Boot feature, one to start the PC under Windows 10 pro or start the PC under Windows 7 64bit . But before buying the PC , i wand to make sure that the Windows 7 drivers are available for this PC.

Hi Richard3211, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
You're out of luck on that one, as there are only drivers for Windows 10 Home 64 and Pro 64. This is because Windows 10 is the only Windows version supported on 7th generation Intel processors and onward. The X1 Extreme is based on 8th generation Intel processors.

Thank you for quick response! In this case, What if i install Windows 10 Hyper-V (or any other VM software) and then install Windows 7 on it, Would that be my second option?

Nobody answered you but YES. If you install Windows 10 Home/Pro and install something like VMware Workstation, you can create virtual machines that run any version from Windows XP to Server to macOS. 32-bit or 64-bit VMs.
