Windows 7 Install

I just built a custom computer, and I have a legit copy and code for Vista 64bit. I'm trying to install Vista, but when it reaches the second step, I get a message that it can't find the cd/dvd driver (It's actually a Blu-Ray player/DVD re-writable). Here's what it says: "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now." I've been browing but for the life of me I can't find it. Please help! I have an onboard DVD\CD burner not USB. I have gone to the Dell website the do not have any drivers for Vista or Windows 7 I have a Dell 670

Only windows Vista SP2 is compatible with BlueRay discs. You should try to get a copy of Windows Vista with SP2 incorporated.
Another solution is to install it using a USB device, and then install SP2.
