I simply wonder if a combi-bolter firing its combi-weapon round count has a bolter for the Bolter Drill ability from Lysander. I know it's not a bolt round but it's still a boltgun that's firing, so what do you guys think ? Now that I think about it there might be a faq about this, anyone ?

Bolter drill, I would say that just means that the bolter rounds fired from any sort of bolter, combi or otherwise, use that rule, combi shots would not be affected.
That's....actually an interesting question. I don't see anything on the FAQ about it.
Going through the codex, combi-weapons are defined as bolters that have a secondary alternative firing mode with a single use. Since the Bolter Drill rule specifies any Heavy Bolter, Storm Bolter, Bolter, or Bolt Pistol; I would argue that the Bolter Drill rule does in fact apply to the secondary mode of a combi-weapon.
That is the key. Bolter Drill specifies Heavy Bolter, Storm Bolter, Bolter, and Bolt Pistol. When you fire a combi weapon your fire either the Bolter or the melta/plasma/flamer. So if you fire the melta, you are not firing a bolter, thus bolter drill does not apply to that shot. Thats how I look at it.secondary alternative firing mode with a single use

I have to agree with Brother_Kendo on this one. It can be a slippery path as once you start this kind of conversation you may get some people claiming that their bolter shots on the Combi-flamer and Combi-Melta are twin-linked because of Vulkan...
