I don't know how successful this is going to be. Rufus will not let me choose the recommended GPT format with UEFI -it displays an error as soon as I choose my Win7 ISO file. I've chosen MBR + UEFI for BIOS/Computer so hope that works.

Last time I didn't create the 3 partitions mentioned in the post you refer to - only one - would this make any difference?

To install with UEFI you need to install to a GPT disk, so the MBR formatting of stick won't work. You must choose UEFI format stick as shown in UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows.

Then during booted install delete all partitiions to make sure it formats the disk in GPT format and proceeds with install.

Your BIOS should have Secure Boot disabled and Legacy Mode or CSM disabled if you choose UEFI, or enabled if you choose to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7.
