Mongod.exe is missing - mongod.cfg Failed to find yaml file

I followed the instructions in

but the mongod.exe is missing (only mongo.exe and mongos.exe are present) and I can read in the installation logs

CA - YAML_FILE = C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\5.0\bin\mongod.cfg
Received GetLastError 2
MSI (s) (9C:28) [10:07:15:011]: Executing op: ActionStart(Name=RegisterProduct,Description=Registering product,Template=[1])
Failed to find yaml file

Also the file mongod.cfg is missing.

All I did was execute the command

msiexec.exe /l*v mdbinstall.log /qb /i mongodb-windows-x86_64-5.0.5-signed.msi

Why is this installation failing?

I think you have to mention the components using ADDLOCAL
Check different options like with Compass/without Compass from the link you shared
