Solution

In case other people are wondering how to fix this:

Install Parallels Tools by running your Windows 7 VM and then selecting Install Parallels Tools... from the Virtual Machine menu in Parallels. This will prompt an install wizard on your VM. After you're done the missing drivers will be installed.
