Sure, that should be fine. Note that you'll also need to ensure that the final system you install uses linux-libre-4.4, by adding (kernel linux-libre-4.4) to your OS configuration. I'm not sure off-hand how to do this when using the guided graphical installer, but maybe someone else here knows. I've only ever done manual installations. Mark
