Can't install any drivers

I was trying to update drivers and it kept freezing. Figured I was due for a system refresh so I did a clean windows install, I now cannot get ANY drivers to install.

 

I'm using a Radeon VII.  In every instance, the installer progress bar either gets about 7/8ths of the way across in the "detecting hardware" screen, or gets to the  "checking for new drivers" screen (depending on the version) and then the entire system freezes.

 

THINGS I HAVE TRIED

 

-Installing in safe mode

-running DDU, then installing

-Running windows update, then installing

-doing ANOTHER clean install with no internet connection (so no windows update, no auto-installed drivers), -transferring the drivers to the PC via USB, and then installing

-Swapping the Radeon VII for a Vega 56 and then installing

-Installing the version 19 WHQL drivers from either 12/19 or 10/19 instead

-Installing the newest drivers

-Installing the 3/5 WHQL drivers

-Installing the Radeon Pro enterprise drivers

 

My system

Processor: Intel 9900k

MB Asrock Taichi Z390 Ultimate

Memory: 64GB Gskill 3200

AX 1600i PSU

 

This system was stable for a year, now nothing works.
