Windows 7: Windows 7 doesn't see my SSD...

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Windows 7 doesn't see my SSD...

Hello all,

I am trying to install Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on a Kingston HyperX 240Gb SSD. The motherboard is an ASSRock Extreme4 Gen3. I've set my SATA3 port in ACPI mode, but still, Windows 7 simply cannot find my SSD. When I press install it says "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"... The BIOS sees the SSD. I am installing Windows 7 Professional 64 bit SP1 btw. Please help...
