Hi Thom,

Your wireless drivers are not included in the minimal environment, which I think is correct for minimal installation. 

If you want to have your wireless drivers installed then we need to add iwl* packages to minimal environment or better to add an optional group in it. However, this must be done in comps not in Anaconda.
Comment 2 Stephen Gallagher 2017-07-28 07:43:28 EDT
This isn't a bug. A minimal install is not expected to have wireless support. If you want wireless support, either select the optional wireless drivers checkbox in anaconda or choose a more-complete install target (such as Workstation or Server).
