Copy the whole SetupRST_extracted folder onto the flash drive (with the Windows installer.)

After booting from the USB and clicking Load Driver in the install windows select the Drivers folder (SetupRST_extracted\production\Windows10-x64\15063\Drivers) and press OK, it should give you a list of drivers and the one two select would be the one in the RAID folder (SetupRST_extracted\production\Windows10-x64\15063\Drivers\RAID\iaStorAC.inf).
I'm installing windows 11. The dialog says none are compatible.
I tried all the noncompatible ones, none worked.

Those drivers are for Windows 11 (as well.) So not sure why it'd say it's not compatible.

I believe the bottom one in the list should be the one. When you say "none worked" you mean that it didn't install the driver or that installing the driver didn't help to see the drive to install? (And if the latter, did you hit refresh on the installation screen after installing the driver?)

If you want you can try to take the drivers from Dell (seems the same to me, but can't hurt to try) see https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-us/000132969/how-to-load-intel-rapid-storage-technology-driver-to-install-os-on-nvme-memory (your driver would be https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-us/drivers/driversdetails?driverid=8j2f4&oscode=w2021&productcode=optiplex-7010-plus-desktop)

One more thing. Was the RAID already configured, the RAID needs to be configured before you can use it.

If you didn't configure the RAID yet, make sure to do so in the Device Configuration on the Boot Options menu (on Start-up press the F12 key then select Device Configuration.)

Regardless of if it was already set up or not, it might be good to put a picture of that RAID configuration screen.

Now I can't find the driver in the extracted folder from Dell...
I think raid was configured already.
