Can't install clean windows 7 on xp os

I am getting an error when ask "where do you want to install windows?"

Message reads Windows cannot be installed on Disc 0 Partition 1

When I click show detail, it says windows needs the driver for device [ULi SATA/RAID Controller(M1573)

Does anyone have a clue? right now I have xp Pro Service pack 3 installed

I did indeed select custom install.
