Windows 7: Which is the right Driver????

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Which is the right Driver????

Hi to the list,
i post here because suggested me to do it hooping in help.
I have posted before in the DUAL BOOT INSTALLATION WITH WINDOWS AND XP Thread but could not get the solution.ows 7 and XP
I need an help.
I have a new PC that has as configuration three hard drives in Raid 5
and as MB an ASUS P8Z68V-LE
The PC does'nt have any Floppy Drive.
I have installed on Drive C, Windows 7 at 64 Bit.
I want to install in Dual Boot on Drive D,Windows XP.
I have been suggestet to make a Slipstream of the Windows CD with the Sata Drivers but do not understand which one to select.
I choosed iastor.sys, but i get more then one driver. I get:

Intel(R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) 5 Series 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller
Intel(R) ICH10D/DO SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) ICH7M/MDH SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) ICH7MDH SATA RAID Controller
Intel(R) ICH7R/DH SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) ICH7R/DH SATA RAID Controller
Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) ICH9R/DO/DH SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller
Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller

I've been in Control Panel\Device Managements, under

Intel(R) - controller SATA RAID ICH8R/ICH9R/ICH10R/DO.

Which is the correct one to select?
The only Driver that has Raid i can see is just the ICH7, while my one starts
with ICH8R and higher.

To avoid errors, I have selected all of them and burned the CD.
Tried to install Windows XP, it goes trough without any problem
till the first reset.
At the first reboot, i can see the windows XP logo for a couple of seconds then i get the BSOD Blue screen error.
I have tried either with Windows XP SP2 and Windows XP SP3 but had the same results. Also i've tried with an external Hard disk with same result.
I attach to the message the Blue screen error.
