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.
