Windows 7: Promise Tech Ultra IDE driver missing

Promise Tech Ultra IDE driver missing


I have a Rock Quaddra Ti laptop - Its really a Clevo D880p. Sager also rebranded it. It has a RAID controller which my hard drive is connected to. Im not using the RAID functionality in any way.

When I try to install windows 7 from XP, it says that the PROMISE TECH ultra IDE driver is required. It then offers me the option to browse to it to conitnue my update.

Unfortunately I can not find any Vista or Windows 7 drivers for this piece of hardware. Its rather surprising as it was quite a popluar laptop at the time, very well known for its power.

Can i just skip this stage, and the drive still work?

Or does anyone know of a solution? The laptop is 6 years old - surely someone must have updated theirs with vista and must have a windows 7 compatible driver?

Please help!!!
