Just for fun, I booted to Ubuntu 15.04. No input device was recognized for the microphone. I disabled the DHMI Display Audio in bios and rebooted to Windows 10. I get speakers but no mic, same as ubuntu. I am wondering if I have a faulty unit. Is there an on-board diagnostics utility that will check the board for hardware failures?

The driver did not work, I contacted Customer Support and did a warranty replacement (I paid a fee to get a box shipped while I kept my current one). I swapped my components (hard drives, RAM) into the new kit and the microphone worked just fine. I recognizes my headset when I plug it into the jack and the speakers and mic both work.
Before given to you any advice I need to collect your system configuration and the specs of your Bose unit. Please download and run our Intel® System Support Utility and send me the results. Also, send the model of your Bose device.
Take a screenshot of device manager window too.
