Are you using the unoffcial non-free firmware .iso to install from?

Are you installing firmware-amdgpu from the non-free repository if not?

You may just be hitting the generic "I have a brand new laptop - why won't it
install" problem common to every Linux for a short while as the newest
hardware lacks immediate support.

What does lspci report for the Wifi chipset in the laptop itself?

All the very best, as ever,
