During a totally clean install on a freshly formatted HDD, is it possible to stop W10 installing a specific problem driver ?

Somehow, W10 manages to install an Atheros WiFi driver before the install procedure finishes and this problem driver is causing such high system interrupts that the install procedure takes around 2 hours to reach the desktop. This driver gets installed before I have given W10 access to my router so it surely can't be getting it from there.

Any way to stop it doing this during install ?

(I did notice that the WiFi light which would normally flash if not connected or there was no driver actually remains steady through much of the install... which is a puzzle)
