I have found this on another site which fixed the issue for a few people.  I originally thought it related to another error when installing from an internal dvd drive but now I think not:

1. Load the RAID driver from CD. (Vista driver will work)
2. Install the driver and create partitions.
3. Remove the driver CD and insert the Windows 7 DVD.
4. Click on Refresh and the error should disappear.

I think I fixed it.
I put in 8 gigs of ram and then ot worked.
so it seems that windows 7 will only load if you have 8 gigs or more of ram

After placing 2 4 gig sodimms in the machine the error went away. I tried it on another machine and that too worked. so windows 7 will only load if you have 8 gigs or more of ram on the toshiba m400
