You'll need to preformat the Win7 partition using a 3rd party partitioning manager like Free Partition Wizard CD.

Then try running the Win7 installer from the XP desktop, directing the Custom install to the 2nd partition.

This may solve the driver problem. If not, locate the SATA contoller driver for your model and put it in the Win7 installer on the link at bottom left of the Custom drive maps screen.
