Please help.. Standard IDE/ESDI Controller Error!

I bought the student version. I downloaded it fine and every time i try to install the program i get this error.

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [Standard IDE/ESDI Hard Disk Controller]. Click 'Load Driver' and load the required device driver.

Is there any way i can fix this? My CD drives stopped working a while back, i have a custom built computer. I tried to download the driver online installed and i still get this error. Can someone please help me.
