Per the documentation it is not supported. Here are two links:

After January 14, 2020, images cannot be created from public Windows 7 bundles. You might want to consider migrating your Windows 7 WorkSpaces to Windows 10. For more information, see Migrate a WorkSpace.


Windows Versions That Are Supported for BYOL Your VM must run one of the following Windows versions:

Windows 10 Version 1803 (April 2018 Update)

Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update)

Windows 10 Version 1903 (May 2019 Update)

Windows 10 Version 1909 (November 2019 Update)

All supported OS versions support all of the compute types available in the AWS Region where you're using WorkSpaces. Versions of Windows that are no longer supported by Microsoft are not guaranteed to work and are not supported by AWS Support.
