Are you installing Windows to the main SATA drive?

No need for Rufus. Windows installer can be created by simply copying the ISO contents to a FAT32 formatted USB.

You can then boot the BOOTX64.efi via BIOS.

Windows 7 requires CSM to be enabled in BIOS.

CSM not, CMS. Compatibility support module. May be called "hybrid" or other nonsense.

Look at your boot option regarding UEFI...

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

System: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
Mobo: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

Thanks for filling out your profile.

There is no option for CSM in 6-series (chipset) laptops. It is always enabled. In 7-series, you can enable/disable it.

Read post #4268. Your problem was likely due to Rufus use. There is no need for Rufus.

Make sure you're booting the Windows installer UEFI via BIOS.

Make sure BIOS is updated to latest.

Make sure Windows ISO is Microsoft retail, not OEM.

Show photo of problem.
