Windows 11 installation issue: ROG STRIX Z790-E GAMING WIFI II + i9-14900k

Hi guys, 1st post here so bear with me 🙂 

I just assembled my 1st PC (pretty much all ROG products) and all good so far. Nothing exploded 🙂

Now, that all is assembled and working properly (allegedly) I'm trying to install Windows11 out of a USB as a 1st install. Surprise surprise I have that bloody error message that "some drivers couldn't be found" before Windows 11 starts its installation. 

Did anyone had this issue with the same or similar motherboard? If so how did you solve it? 

Can't believe I spent all this money on a brand new PC and now the most basic stuff doesn't even work - install Windows 11...

Any help is really appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Did it happen to mention which drivers couldn't be found? 

The last time I saw that error was when trying to use a RAID setup.  If you're not planning on installing Windows to RAID, make sure you have RAID turned off in the BIOS.  Otherwise, if you are planning on using RAID, those drivers have to be included installation image - instructions to do that can be found by searching Google.

I have read that some people had problems trying to install Windows with only a wireless internet setup, but I'm not familiar with the details about that.

Have a Good One! 😎
