Did you install it into win7 install.wim ?
Yes we have tried to put the video driver into the install.wim with DISM.exe before we flashed the image onto the drive but that also did not get us any further. It gets stuck in the same boot loop as last time.

Windows XP

I think you were on the right track looking into Legacy boot capability.

I had a W8 / UEFI machine a few years ago; could install Linux + W7 RTM only in Legacy mode (with 1 or 2 other BIOS settings changed ??? ), and then afterward it would bring up the GRUB, for Linux or W7, but NOT W8.

W8 - the ORIGINAL OS, was bootable only by F12 @ startup, W8 boot manager (and it remained in Legacy Mode, for next boot-up).

edit - you said 'no Legacy option'; is Legacy option 'grayed out' / disabled? If so, there might be another BIOS Setting needing to be reset, to Enable the option. ?

We needed this single board computer to host a SQL server to store the data collected from the sensors. And we would like to see if we can use SQL server data analysis services to see if we can find any patterns. We also need this single board computer to run miscellaneous programs that can only run on Windows 7 (Windows 7 is a better OS anyways ).
It would be a perfect device if we could get Windows 7 to run on it. Hardware-wise it should be able to run Windows 7.
We really need to make this device to work with Windows 7 or it would be completely useless for us.
We have tried a lot things to get the OS installed on this device but we just can't get it to work.

There doesn't really seem to be an option in the BIOS to turn on Legacy or CSM. We have turned off fast boot and secure boot but that didn't help either.
When trying to make a bootable USB device with Rufus with GPT support for UEFI it loads up until displays it starting Windows and then it locks up.

Here is a list of the other things we have tried in different combinations:

Rufus with several different options to make it UEFI compatible:
Hangs at starting Windows
Modifying an ISO making it UEFI compatible:
Same issue
Installing Windows 7 through the pre-installed Windows 10 and finding the possible driver asscociated with it (Intel SD Host Controller):
Won't pick up the driver (maybe the wrong driver?)
YUMI multiboot MBR and GPT:
Won't start from the USB device
Several ISO files including Windows server 2008:
Same issue
Won't start from the USB device
PLOP bootloader:
Won't start from the USB device
Windows install safemode:
Hangs at disk.sys
Windows install ignoring bad driver signatures:
Same issue
Windows install with logs:
Can't find where the logs are located

If anyone has a solution to this problem we would be really grateful,
how did everything go? I am trying myself to install windows 7 because i need it to work with some applications.

It may be emmc drivers are needed. I only have these:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 + XP Ultimate (Custom)

This is like the issue with installing windows 7 on the gpd win. It has the new cherry trail atom cpu that has only windows 10 support. But besides that, it also uses emmc flash memory instead of proper pcie or sata ssd memory. So it only works with windows 10 as it needs the weird host controller driver that i was never able to get working. Intel sd host controller?

and i tried both those drivers for emmc in the previous post, neither would let me install windows 7 still.
