    To take advantage of E3, you must have the following:

    -Windows 10 Pro, version 1607 (Windows 10 Anniversary Update) or later, installed and activated, on the devices to be upgraded
    -Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) available for identity management

    You could refer to the requirements from this article:
    Windows 10 Enterprise E3 in CSP

    Therefore, you must first upgrade windows7 to windows10 Pro to be able to meet the conditions.
    If a Pro device had been upgraded to Enterprise via E3, then E3 disabled or expired, this device will go back Pro but still activated.

    Hope above information can help you.
