Hi! First! u need to integrate usb3 drivers in win 7 insatallation media!!! then during the first steps of win7 installation give path to the hard drive drivers. (u can simply put them on the stick, with the previously above mentioned usb drivers integrated).  The hard drive drivers can be found here: downloadcenter.intel.com/.../Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver.

I have not tried loading Win 7 on a PCIe M.2 drive.  The driver for such a drive should be in the UEFI Firmware.  Which means you would need to install Windows 7 in that configuration.  If you don't know, you will need at least version SP1 of Windows 7, and it won't boot as Secure Boot.  It may need to be set as other OS, depending on your Bios.

Beyond that, most instructions suggest removing all other drives.
