Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Elite AX - cannot get PCI controller installed


Purchased a bundle from Microcenter with the Z690 Aorus Elite AX mobo and Intel i9-12900k processor. Flashed the mobo with the latest BIOS - "FM" version. This is required to work with the new i9 processors. Built the machine, installed Win 10 Pro. Cannot get the PCI controller to install. Gone though all the drivers on the Gigabyte site and also tried to find one on the Intel site. Can someone please point me in the right direction for resolving this. Built many pc's and never had a problem like this.
