You should install the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology drivers. You normally only need the preinstall drivers if the operating system doesn't contain the basic drivers, which Windows 7 does.

The yellow exclamation mark next to SM Bus Controller requires the Intel chip set drivers, (Intel INF installation drivers).

Is your system set to AHCI?
