    Got it!

    searched for CUINotRequired in registry hive and it appears to be device specific. Im fine with that since it will only be done once. Now the igfxpanel fired up (after restart obviously) right after setting CUINotRequired to "0" just like what you said, in
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000 & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0001

    Tried doing short benchmarks using novabench and it appears that enabling "software processing" in vertex mode does not do some magic anymore as much as it does in windows 7 and accdg to sites showing how to tweak intel gma.

    What took me by surprise is that "application settings," still an option in vertex mode, significantly increases the fps from the usual 28-32 in windos 7 to 29 to 56 here in windows 8! That's almost twice an increase I never thought it can ever get!

    Feels like some games that I can play pretty good in windows 7 does not do well here in windows 8 for some reason, though novebench tells otherwise. Glad windows 8 was able to utilize some hidden performance tweaks to get the best out of this poor fella.
    Will try to do this with your mod driver and I'll conduct the same benchmark with the same settings and we'll see.

    If you find anything (Say, a registry key which is supposed to be changed in windows 8) tell me and I'll add it to the Drivers. I saw a guy in this thread mixing drivers to get slightly better performance.

    What I would do is look over the inf from the Intel HD 3000/4000 package and make sure everything is correctly set. My theory is that something from the Newer HD 3000 driver could be copied to the modified driver (say the openGL dll) and allow netflix to be played.

    ah! Ket. yeah, been following his thread and his mod driver is what i used to have in this box before moving to 8. for now everything seems to be good. i finally installed your mod (after doing some comparisons against unmodded intel gma driver) and will take that advice about intel hd 3000. as for some stuff to be added in your list, i'll post right on as i encountered one.

    rated 5 for this great contribution!

    Make sure to read the first post completely.
    1. Download and install the custom certificate
    2. Download the correct driver for your card
    3. Install the driver

    If you still can't get it to install send me your hardware ID's for your graphics Card

    Hi there, I hope someone can help, I am trying to update my graphics drivers (intel mobile 4), I'm trying to use the drivers mentioned at the beginning of this thread.
    When I try to install them, I get a message saying
    "The driver selected for this device does not support this version of windows"
    do I need to update something I am using windows 8 professional, that is fully updated.

    Thanks.

    Hardware ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A42&SUBSYS_03001025&REV_07


    Ok so managed to get the graphics drivers installed, and also found a driver for the SMO8800 ST Micro accelerometer, but I cannot get my screen to auto rotate, which did work on windows 7. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Right click the desktop -> screen resolution -> Allow the Screen to autorotate

    There's a few more solutions listed here.
