When I put Windows 10 media in the DVD, it sees no Storage, but allows to "Load Drivers"

I loaded the Drivers I got from :

I loaded the SATA (not the NVMe) onto USB :

But the Windows 10 install won't take any of these drivers if I select them, and hides them if I check "Hide Drivers..."

 

If I try the original drivers that came with the A88X motherboard , the Windows 10 installation doesn't even see them at all, whether I click hide or not. (= AMD A88X Chipset Support DVD Rev 1128.03, which on the DVD it says supports up to Win 8.1)

 

Is there a driver for the onboard SATA Raid that will actually work with Windows 10 ? 

I've been looking everywhere but so far this was the closest I could find , but these drivers appear to be for newer Chipsets & hardware than what I have. 

Any help would be appreciated.
