apologies if this isnt relevant, but similar idea though different supplier.
got a ryzen 3400g based desktop from ccl over here in the uk.
installed archlinux on it.
as long as its not secure boot, linux distros will nowadays instal on most x86-64 based systems.
only glitch i had was soundcard was card1 since hdmi was card0, was a bit ugg.
had to ssh in and sort it.
get cheap hdmi monitor and then u can ocr it if it hangs and thers no sign of life.
same as u can ocr a screen capture on a vm.
anybody who sells pc without os should be ok, just if its secure boot it can be difficult/impossible.
