Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
Windows 7 Install Driver Issue?

I thought this was going to be an easy fix, but...
Quick Setup: Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3 version 1.0; I am setting RAID zero with two WD 160gig HDs. A Pioneer DVD drive and a Lite-On DVD drive. This is a 64-bit install.
I set the RAID config and cleaned the drives. Popped the Windows 7 install disk in my DVD drive and the install began. Set the language prefs and clicked 'Install.' Shortly after I get the following error...
Load Driver

A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
My first guess was not a CD/DVD driver but a RAID driver is needed. I tried using the latest RAID drivers from Gigabyte. I made sure I was using the 64-bit version of the drivers.

When installing the driver, Windows install responds with "can not find the drive." 'Drive' not 'driver.'

There are no drivers available for my two DVD drives. The standard Windows driver has always been sufficient.

What driver is the install is looking for? Do you think I may have missed something in the RAID config?
