Via does not provide any Windows 7 SATA/RAID drivers for the VT8237. You could try using Vista drivers found here:

VIA Drivers Download - VIA Technologies, Inc.

Step 1 - Microsoft Windows
Step 2 - Windows Vista (32 or 64 bit, depending on which version of 7 you are installing)
Step 3 - IDE, RAID & SATA
Step 4 - VT8237 Integrated Serial ATA RAID controller

Make sure to follow the directions to create a driver disk. You'll probably need it when you attempt to install Windows 7, as your controller will probably not be discovered, which will prevent Windows from finding any hard drives.

I have no idea if this will work.
