You need to have CSM enabled.

It's trying to boot on LAN. You didn't disabled Lan boot.
- Boot options- 1st = HDD; 2nd and 3rd = disabled

Did you created the Win 7 installation USB disk as on post 2?

Boot Options:

Boot Option #1 - HDD
Boot Option #2 - USB (if this isn't enabled, the USB doesn't show up to boot from)
Boot Option #3 & #4 - Disabled

UEFI Setting - Disabled

Set up like that, I get the image from post #10

I then went into Network Device BBS Priorities and disabled the LAN, and when trying to boot from USB I get:
Problems Installing Windows 7 with UEFI-20180809_033841-min.jpg

And yes I created the Win 7 installation disk as in post #2 (even tried a new USB stick to see if that made any change, but nope)

My next attempt was to boot from a UEFI WinPE CD based on Win 7, with the UEFI setting enabled in BIOS. Didn't boot. After that I made a UEFI WinPE CD based on Win 10, with UEFI setting enabled in BIOS. MAnaged to boot. From there I ran the setup.exe from the usb stick and managed to go through all the install of windows 7 onto my SSD. Unfortunately, when trying to boot from the SSD, I got:
Problems Installing Windows 7 with UEFI-20180804_002144-min.jpg
As a side note, I had formatted the SSD as exFAT (I'd tried to format it as fat32 but diskpart wouldn't do it - I may try again, but waiting 5 hours kinda sucked). The installer said it couldn't install to any partition unless it was ntsf... (so I waited 5 hours for the formatting for nothing v.v)

Next I'll try to boot from a non UEFI WinPE CD with various different settings and see if that works...

Anyone got anymore ideas?

I tried booting from DVD and got a bit further... I had UEFI enabled on the Boot tab, and I had used the Windows download tool to make the DVD. This time I got as far as the Windows is Starting splash screen, where it promptly got stuck.

My last resort is to update the BIOS... but if anyone has any ideas that are less risky than this, I would be so grateful QQ

Updating the BIOS can bring more options. Download from Clevo P15SM page of manufacture site.
