That is just because of an outdated list of device names used by lspci, which does not influence drivers in any way. You can fetch a new one with:

Re: New motherboard woes

The Mint 17.x versions are all based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, that probably explains why the hardware isn't working yet even though it works in Ubuntu 15.x. You could try installing the newer linux-firmware package from Ubuntu 15.10 which does include the file skl_dmc_ver1.bin: http://mirrors.kernel.org...

Re: Are the drivers for Elantech touchpad included in Mint17

The Linux Mint team generally does not work on hardware support, that is already handled by other projects such as the Linux kernel and some people at Debian & Ubuntu on which Mint is based. The improvements Mint did to 17.3 Mate are about easier configuration of touchpads, such as selecting the way...

Indeed at the top of the how-to, you are asked to install realmd, sssd, and a few other programs using an apt-get command. Installing them was indeed the right thing to do.
