I hope anyone can help me, I'm posting this as a new question because all solutions point to installing linux kernel 4.3, but I'm already on 4.4 from the start.
I have tried to install the firmware drivers from the intel website, the GUC 6.1 and the DMC 1.23 (the contents from dmc 1.26 didn't match the installation instructions). This all seem to end without errors
Here is some info from the hardware
