Against my better judgement I built an all AMD PC with ALL AMD PROBLEMS ALL THE TIME... Today's issue is that the chipset drivers will not install to save my freaking life. I don't get a specific error code on the installer, just says "failed to install chipset drivers"... I've updated Windows to the latest 20H2 version, updated all other drivers, did sfc /scannow, did chkdsk /r, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, uninstalled my Anti virus software... idk what else to do it just wont install. So incredibly frustrating.
Only error in the Log File:

Huh? No I don't have a single piece of MSI gear in my system. The MSI stuff in the log is from the installer... its a .msi file which is a windows installer file
Shouldn't matter for this since the chipset drivers are the same package regardless of board manufacturer, but here you go.
Asus ROG Strix B550i mini-itx
Ryzen 7 3700x
Radeon RX 5700XT
And if you are going to suggest I use ASUS Grid to download the chipset driver, I already looked at that and the "latest" chipset driver available on there is 9 months old which is older than the version already installed and predates my chipset completely so that is not a solution.
I really need help from someone capable of analyzing the logfile I provided as I suspect this is a software/OS issue.
It seems to be error 1603 from the log text. There are a few things you can try.
1. Delete the C:\AMD folder and try to reinstall
2. Check if you're doing so with a Local account (admin privileges)
3. If the above doesn't work, run the MS troubleshooter to uninstall 'AMD Chipset software' (SMBus, GPIO etc). Reboot..
4. Try installing again
