Seemes to me correct, I'm just missing a step, where the system asks for
wether or not to trust "Linux foundation", when installing the drivers?!

Start a CMD.EXE as admin, and pls see dpinst.exe /? options. I recommend
to first do a complete uninstallation (and if you have older drivers
like glpv, uninstall them as well).

By manually starting dpinst.exe you will have more options to see what
has failed. What is written in the system logs/application log? There
must be a reasoning there.

It is installed absolutely the same way, it has just a more mature more
compatible and generally better codebase.

It is, but currently those drivers are not signed, which menas, you have
to enable testsigning if you want them to work. (BCDEDIT.EXE
