You can update your install media (drivers, service pack, windows updates, programs) with this guide:
[Guide] Integration of drivers into a Win7/8/10 image

I've used Rufus to make an ISO in the past, even with a simple user interface, the author told me there was a workflow to follow(select ISO first or something), can't remember specifics though.

Hello Sebastian,

Personally, I wouldn't recommend using UEFI with Windows 7. UEFI is better with Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 instead.

Hello Sebastian,

Are you trying to setup a dual boot with this installation on another disk, or is this going to be a clean install with only Windows 7 on one disk?

I am having issues with my new build and Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Retail. I first installed as standard MBR but decided I wanted to used the new GPT UEFI method. So I deleted all the partitions, converted to GPT, booted the Windows installer via the UEFI selection and proceeded with installation. I verified it was installed via UEFI by checking I had the System, MSR, and Windows Partitions. I also checked some log that indicated that the detected boot environment was EFI.

Everything is running fine but I plan on dual booting to OSX later and discovered I need to have CSM disabled. I contacted EVGA and asked them for a UEFI compatible BIOS and they gladly obliged. I went into my bios and turned CSM off. The computer will POST and starts loading Windows. The animated logo will show and just prior to showing the desktop, it reboots.

The bios gives the following message: "The current BIOS setting do not fully support the Windows UEFI mode. The CSM (Compatibility Support Module) settings have been changed for better compatibility. For further adjustments, press <F1> to enter BIOS Setup. If No adjustment are needed, press <F2> to confirm the current settings and enter OS directly."

I thought oh Great, now I have to reinstall. So before I wiped the drive again, I unplugged my SSD and storage drive to try installation to the 180GB drive I intend to use for OSX later. I again turned CSM off and tried booting to the UEFI Windows DVD. It does the same thing, just prior to showing the installer, it reboots. I'm not sure what is wrong. Do I have a Bios setting wrong? I updated all the drivers directly from the manufacturer for Intel and Nvidia. I'm pretty sure Secure Boot is turned off, I have "Other OS" selected. It still says Secure boot is enabled but not Loaded but I guess that's normal for Asus Bios's? I also turned off Fast Boot because I thought it doesn't work with Windows 7, not sure.

My hardware:
Asus Gryphon Z97 running latest BIOS
Intel 4690K Slightly OC'd
EVGA Geforce 660 FTW ACX w/ UEFI Bios
LG BluRay Drive
Samsung Evo 850 SSD 250GB
HGST 7K1000 Travelstar 1TB
Hitachi 180GB
I was having the same rebooting of Windows 7 installation regardless of media used. I was also disabling CSM, only way to stop this is having CSM enabled. I gain a UEFI install by only having to change option Boot from Storage Devices [Legacy OPROM first] to [UEFI driver first]

All other setting are as per UEFI defaults, ie:-

Fast Boot = enabled
Secure Boot = enabled (with all keys loaded)
OS type = Windows UEFI Mode
CSM = enabled

I don't know if this will help you as you state your disabling CSM to go dual-boot with OSX, but thought it may give you some explanation regarding the rebooting of Win 7 installer, link to my thread on Hexus.net.
