    Unhappy Dell Precision 7510 Install Issues

    I just picked up a new Dell Precision 7510. During my attempt to install Fedora 23 anaconda can't detect either of the 2 SSDs I have installed. I'm sure its just the a controller driver issue. Since this system is so new, I was expecting this sort of issue. Others are experiencing this same issue with other distros:

    This is just a shot in the dark but, are there any other Dell Precision 7510 users here? Have you had any luck finding controller drivers?

    The official dell driver resource does not list any.

    UPDATE: Looks like the chipset used is "Mobile Intel® CM236 Chipset
    (Intel® GL82CM236 PCH)"

    Nothing found for "CM236" or "GL82CM236" @ https://downloadcenter.intel.com

    Hey, how are things with the 7510? I also got a new one, and have installed Fedora 24. You upgraded yet? I saw zero issues with the SSD but a few other things are still problematic. Want to compare notes?

    I don't recall any issue with the SSDs (both the PCIe and an additional SATA drive).

    What I did: update BIOS to version 1.5.4 and changed "UEFI boot" to "Legacy boot", then partitioned the two SSDs. No additional drivers needed.
