No wifi in live boot environment on Lenovo Ideapad 5

Wifi connections aren’t showing up in the networks tab in the live boot environment. Do i just need to actually install it first, or will wifi be the same so i know how to fix it before installing?

Device-1: Realtek RTL8852AE 802.11ax PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

could be not detected because:
fast boot needs to be disabled in bios - you may not have this option
fast startup needs to be disabled in windows

pamac build rtw89-dkms-git

This DKMS is needed for any Kernel below 5.16. Any Kernel above has it included, so you need to blacklist the kernel driver to use this dkms. If both are installed and none is blacklisted then you get weird results.
