Hi Akemi,

Thanks for the link, but none of the info made a difference. The only 
thing I found was that trying to have the Xorg configuration, without 
setting i915.preliminary_hw_support set to 1 will cause the system to 
crash when it tries to start X.

Guess I will have to wait until there is a newer kernel.

This didn't work well for me. I have a SuperMicro X11SSV-Q motherboard 
with an i7-6700 (6th gen i7) processor. When I enable this option, the 
system boots (although I can tell that it does something different, the 
standard font that the bootup messages display in is smaller, and I get a 
bunch of DRM warnings). 
However, once the Centos login screen appears, it is like the screen is 
twice as wide as it is supposed to be, but I can only see the right half 
of the screen on the monitor. The mouse will slide to the left off the 
border and take as much movement to get back on the visible screen. I can 
blindly login using the keyboard, and my desktop appears, but again, only 
apparently the right half. If I move the mouse, say up and down without 
clicking the buttons, it is like it is dragging a shade over the screen 
with the mouse. I can right click, then slide the mouse down and reveal 
the right click menu. 
Obviously it is not really useable in this state. 
Perhaps something in Xorg.conf that needs to be tweaked? 

​I don't have the relevant hardware, so cannot test, but you may want to 
try the options listed here:
