Possibly this is a hardware modem, with a serial (COM) port on-board. Can you see how many COM ports are listed during POST (usually there's a system summary screen somewhere during POST) or get into BIOS setup and see how many COM ports are listed?

Or it is just windows terminology... "serial controller" actually meaning "modem". Insert whatever install media that came with your modem, see what happens.
