No Bluetooth on Precision T3620 with Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260

Hi.

My recently acquired Precision Workstation T3620 is equipped with an Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260.

I've recently installed Windows 10 Pro.
There is a Bluetooth section in Settings - Devices, but no Bluetooth devices are present.
Windows device manager doesn't show any Bluetooth hardware.

Any idea on how to enable Bluetooth?

PS. Yes, all Windows updates as well as Dell drivers are installed on the system.
Intels Bluetooth drivers are installed as well.

WLAN works as expected - no issues here.

A ton of research turns out, that even though Intel Wireless 8260 does support Bluetooth, the PCIe adapter Dell ships/installs the Wireless Card with doesn't. There are other solution on the market (Gigabyte) you have to consider, in order to get it to work.

Dell doesn't even care mentioning the lack of Bluetooth support though.
