I am looking to get Linux as my main OS but dual boot it with Windows 7 as a backup, in case I case I completely fail to get something running on Linux.
Will Windows 7 be installable with these parts? I don't mind doing some fixes and workarounds, but it has to be possible.

You can use the Win 7 product key to install/activate Win 10. This is still legal (supported by MS) and will cost you nothing to do so as long as the product key is legit.

Regardless, Win 7 drivers for the Ryzen based rig are still available.

The other devices, like network and audio should also be available, it just may take some effort to locate (and then install) them.
