Honestly, just try it and see. Thats all you can do. If you have to, maybe check and see if theres a legacy mode for older OSes in the BIOS. Downside? Youd have to go in and switch from legacy to whatever it was before when going back to Windows 10.

As long as it installs and runs, you can just install the drivers after. I would try the straight install first. Worry about slipstreaming or adding driver during install only if the straight install doesn't work.

The problem with pre-Win10 OS install is the lack of USB drivers in the base install. You lose keyboard/mouse. You have to create a custom installer with the proper drivers pre-loaded to allow you to complete the insall.
