It seems the Windows 11 install media (USB) doesn't recognize the 980 pro. 

Is there a driver?

Does your computer Bios recognize the 980 Pro?  Is the 980 Pro connected to a PCIE Gen 4 M.2 slot?

Turns out that I had to install the Intel RST drivers as my laptop was configured for that mode in BIOS. Whenever I tried to install Win11, the installation process would get to the part where you select the drive, but no drives would be listed. It couldn't see the drive because I didn't have the RST drivers loaded. I manually added the RST drivers during install (pointed Win11 to USB drive with the RST drivers on it) and ... Presto...It is solved.
