Intel Skylake Server Processor

Hello,
We have a new Intel Skylake server which uses AST2500 graphics. The 6.9 distribution will boot but before the Anaconda graphics screen for configuration input the server hangs. If I install an Invidia NVS310 which overrides the AST2500 everything works. Does anyone have an iso driver which can be loaded on boot or the required grub commands.
Thank you.

Does it do it with CentOS 7? CentOS 6 has followed RHEL 6 and is now in production phase 3 which means that only updates for critical security problems will be released until it goes EOL in 2020. For new installations you are strongly recommended to use CentOS 7.

CentOS 7.3 and RHEL 7.4 work with the AST2500. The main problem is that there are users where their applications only work on CentOS 6.*.

A possibility is to install 7 on the hardware and use a VM running 6 for those applications.
