I’m at a complete loss here. I cannot figure this out. Please help.

I just bought the Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus and plugged it into my HA host machine (details above) but it doesn’t see it.
At first the Windows Device Manager had a driver error on it, but it was not found via Windows Optional Updates. So, I found this post that instructed me to download and install the driver from Silicon Labs.
I installed the driver and rebooted the machine and no more errors in the Device Manager. Plugged the USB Dongle back in but still nothing in HA. Followed this walk-through on flashing it. That went without any hiccups.
I tried to setup the Integration manually by going to Settings > Devices and Services > Add Integration and adding the Zigbee Home Automation.
It detected Serial Device Path of
/dev/ttyS0 - ttyS0 but after a few seconds of spinning presents me with the manual list. I selected the
ZNP = Texas Instruments Z-Stack since that one had the actual model number of the firmware flashed in the video tutorial.
Then I’m presented with a screen asking for the Serial Port Settings. Serial Device Path is filled in (see above), port speed set to
115200 and then 3 data flow control options: hardware, software, and the last one has no text at all; just a radio. Doesn’t matter none of these work.

HA still does not see the dongle. What am I missing?
EDIT: Fixed typos.
EDIT: I actually don’t want Zigbee Home Automation Integration but Zigbee2Mqtt; either way HA doesn’t see anything.
