You may be able to do the following – turn off raid in the bios firstly depending on whether you want to keep using raid or change to IDE and have 2 separate drives.
Your board may have an intel chip for raid and ide - you could unplug the drives
from the promise raid and plug your drives into the intel raid chip - consult your motherboard manual on how to set up raid prior to OS installation, and then w7 will load the driver for it automatically during installation, and once your OS is installed you install the intelmatrix driver software. The intel chip may only support IDE but at least you will be able to install w7- some had both options - consult your motherboard manual.
You may not be able to get a driver to install using the F6 method for the promise raid controller, as you have pointed out, so hopefully the above apply 's to you.
*Also you would disable the promise controller in the bios prior to this, and enable the intel controller.

I was finally able to load the controller using a WinXP driver. If anyone ever needs this driver don't hesitate to ask.

i got mine working by using the original XP driver

maybe the driver needs to be signed to load at boot.

anyway mine is 376 fasttrak from a MSI k7n2 delta board
i used the driver here
MSI Europe – Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

the file driver name is: nVidia nForce2 SATA RAID Driver (For floppy driver) version
although its the promise driver

all further versions don't seem to work with me.

i also tried a PCI sata card, however i can't bypass the promise or disable it. just it hangs
