Windows 7 install on new build with RAID 0 driver issues

Recently completed my first computer build and am trying to install windows with a raid 0 on 2 500g HDD. I have it set up in the BIOS for 1-4 and 5-6 sata ports to RAID. When I boot from the dvd drive with the windows disk, after clicking install windows, it says:
"a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing" I figured this was a driver for the raid but i cant find it anywhere. if i select browse, there is a boot (x:) folder but i dont see anything in there that would help me. Do i need to download a driver to a usb stick and pull it off there? adn if yes where could i get the driver? i cant find it on the asus website.

thanks in advance and im sorry for the long winded explanation but i just want to get this resolved.

here is my setup:
asus m5a97 LE R2.0 mobo
XFX Radeon 7870
AMD 8350 Processor

  1. Windows can't find the RAID driver to use with your particular mobo, you need to download one from the ASUS site and throw it on USB or another CD.
