Can I Install Windows 7 in UEFI?

Can I install Windows 7 in UEFI? I just use ISO2Disc to burn Windows 7 ISO file to a USB flash drive with GPT, take the USB drive to boot off my UEFI-based PC, it still fails to boot. What step is missing? Or which edition of Windows 7 should I use for UEFI compatibility? Please help!

Thanks for your quick response!
It seems that Windows 7 doesn't support secure boot, a feature in UEFI firmware.
I'll give it a try!
