Problem installing Windows 11 - IRST Driver

Star I

Model S513, Bios X513EAN  New laptop, first time installation of windows on an SSD:

Windows Installer can't find a driver, and from the documentation in ASUS support, the missing driver is the IRST.

From the documentation it seems that I need to download and put the driver into the boot USB, but when I download and run the driver installation utility to extract to a folder on the USB drive,  the resultant content is a bunch of further installer files..instead of an actual driver for windows to detect and continue installation.

I have attached a screen shot of the folder contents created by the driver utility, extracted to the USB device. 

I have followed the video and other written documentation on ASUS support, and am at  loss on how to resolve this issue.

Hi, I have 19 F1605EA to deploy and I'm facing this same issue, even with the Intel Volume Management Device (VMD) technology disable in the BIOS I cannot see the disks. If I install a Linux all is well. I know Windows BS but how can I overcome this issue?


May I know the brand and model, as well as the capacity, of the SSD you have installed?
