Cannot Install Windows 11 VM due to W11 not Recognizing Connection

I am new to UNRaid and VMs and am trying to set up a Windows 11 VM after successfully setting up a Windows 10 VM. 


I loaded the official Windows 11 ISO along with virtio-win-0.1.229-1.iso and made it to the setup screen where Windows 11 requires an internet connection to move on. The video I watched online showed that version of Windows 11 had an option to proceed without an internet connection, but that option is not available on mine. 


I believe I have to set up the virtual driver to establish a network connection, but I can't do that without getting into Windows first.  Any advice?


My network source is "br0" and my network model is "virtio-net", the same I used for the Windows 10 machine.
