Windows 7 install on moddern Kaby Lake laptop ends up wit ACPI BoSD

I want to install Windows 7 on my XMG A517 very badly but I always end up with the 0x000000a5 ACPI BoSD after the install or while booting from USB. I tried many different isos and adding NVMe, USB 3.0 support but I got none to work. What can I do? (The laptop has a very limited American Megatrends UEFI and I can pretty much only turn UEFI on or off)

To install Win 7 on Kaby lake you must add USB 3.x, SATA and NVMe drivers.
ACPI error is related to missing SATA driver.
As you have added USB 3 drivers to the installation disk, you can put the SATA and NVMe drivers on another flash drive and browse to them when asked to CD/dvd driver.
