Default Asrock Extreme6 Driver Install Problem

Hi. I just upgraded my board, CPU and RAM from:

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P
AMD FX 6100
Corsair XMS3 1333Mhz 16GB (2 X 8GB)


ASRock Z77 Extreme6
Intel Core i5 3570k
G.Skill Trident X 1600Mhz 16GB (2 X 8GB)

I reinstalled Windows 7 on the HDD I was using (Toshiba DT01ACA050 500GB 32 MB Cache 7200 RPM SATA III 6.0Gb/s). So any former drivers from the old equipment would be gone. It's plugged into one of the SATA III 6.0Gb/s connectors (gray ones) on the board.

I had no issues until I tried to install drivers from the ASRock package DVD. Each time I install a driver, ie. the SATA III driver or even the audio driver, it requests a restart. Here is the issue:

When the machine restarts after installing a driver, it goes to a DOS page which says the following:

Nero Boot Loader
-error reading table 2 partition
It has other text on the screen which disappears too quickly to read. Then another DOS page with only this:

Driver Disk Preparer
Select Source
1.) Generate RAID/AHCI Diskette
2.) Generate AHCI Driver Diskette for ASMedia 106X SATA Host Controller
3.) Exit

No matter which option I press, it says to press any key and restart. Then, upon the restart, cycles back through all of the DOS stuff again. So after installing a driver, I run into this every time. However, some of the drivers do appear to have been installed, such as the LAN driver -- or I would not have gotten online.

Does anyone know what all of this means? Thanks in advance.
