I installed Windows XP Pro on my macbook air (mac os x lion) using vmware fusion and it works great.  Now I want to upgrade to Winodws 7 Pro.  I have the upgrade cd and when it asks me to install now it says that I cannot install the OS on the partition because "Windows needs the driver for device [VMware SCSI Controller] Click load driver and load the required device.  How do I go about doing this?
