I get the following error message a few seconds after the language selection screen on the Windows Install.
"No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."

I have been unable to get through the Windows 7 installation process. I installed Parallels and get to the part of the Window 7 install where it reads, "Install now". I click on that and it reads, "Setup is starting". A few seconds later I get a pop-up that reads:
Load Driver
A required CD/DVD drive device is missing. if you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step.

I copied the Windows 7 drivers using Boot Camp Assistant onto both a CD and a USB drive.

I downloaded the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installation files as three separate files and as an ISO file. I tried installing with both options after specifying a CD/DVD image in the initial install screen.

What I have:
MBA 2010 4GB 1067 MHz
1.6 GHz Intel Core Duo
Mac OS X 10.6.5
MacBook Air SuperDrive

Legitimate registered version of Parallels
Legitimate license for Windows 7 Home Premium


* Please help. What am I missing?

MBA, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
