Jay, thanks for all the help so far!@KevinAgnes,
I doubt either of those adapters will help you, as all they do is adapt type X to the M.2 standard, since you cant get the DW1560 to work which is already a standard M.2 WiFi/BT card logic dictates that they wont help.
Its very early days for CNVi in the consumer market and i have not been able to find much about it other than the product brief i already posted.
I think you need to try and find out how a CNVi M.2 slot differs from a Standard (for WiFi) M.2 slot (if any)
If there is a specific difference then its possible that in the future some China supplier may make an adapter card to allow the use of a standard M.2 wifi card in a CNVi M.2 slot, however bare in mind that CNVi may need specific BIOS features to work as such for a future adapter to work it may also require the mobo manufacturer to support a CNVi disable feature in the BIOS options.
I think at this stage not enough is known about CNVi by this community, if you can try and find out some more info. Keep an eye on possible BIOS updates that may help to disable CNVi and allow the slot to function as a standard M.2.
Keep us posted on your progress.
Not clear if the CNVi port is M.2 A/E compliant or if Intel disables it with non Intel wifi.I doubt either of those adapters will help you, as all they do is adapt type X to the M.2 standard

Are you sure ?, from the way i read @KevinAgnes posts, its seems he's been able to physical fit a DW1560 in the CNVi slot so the issue is either the logical interface (pin assignment) or BIOS/Firmware which makes the M.2 slot CNVi specific.It is not possible to plug DW1560 into either of the H370N M.2 M Key connectors - Suggest the M.2 M Key to A Key adapter may be worth testing
Can you post a picture of the CNVi WiFi/BT card for us ?
Suggest you put the CNVi card and DW1560 edge to egde with the 'E' keys alined

It´s quite expensive (~$50) and only this company sells them, not sure about delivery too.
I don't dispute the DW1560 fits in the CNVi slot; I submit the DW1560 is disabled in the CNVi slot.
