Windows 7 drivers/support for 82801ER RAID controller

I have a problem either doing a clean(custom install) or upgrade of Windows 7 on a Vista SP2 machine. I get the message:

Answer"Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed."

It appears from searching Microsoft's forums that the problem is no support for my RAID controller even if the most current driver is installed as described in this thread:

My PC is a 5 and a half year old Dell Dimension XPS Gen2 (Dell mother board Model 0U2424) and Intel chipset i875P with a 82801ER SATA RAID controller and a Dell Bios version A03. It has a 3.2Ghz P-4 CPU and 4Gigs of RAM and performs VERY well for a machine this old.

 

Is there any hope of finding or ever seeing drivers from Intel or any other source that would allow me to install Windows 7 on this machine?
