    Intel 82865g


    I recently installed windows 8 customer preview. It all went fine, but the graphics are really ugly.
    It installed the basic driver, and i can't install the win7 driver.
    Please help, really want to use windows 8.

    my specs are :
    Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz
    1 GB RAM 1333Hz
    Intel 82865g chipset with 96 MB VRAM

    Thanks!

    Sorry, as with the Developer Preview, you can't install the video driver that worked in Win7. I have a 915GM chipset and have the same problems. Win8 CP does provide an aero-like look, but since MS apparently disabled XPDM support with Win8, there is literally NO WAY you can get the older Intel drivers working again. I know, I tried everything in Win8 DP and nothing worked.

    In this thread Amazing! Aero Effects working on Old Intel Graphics Card, nibble monkey says he can use it with the same chipset, intel 82865g. And by the way, there must be a solution, i mean, for windows 7 the requirements for aero on 1280x1024 are just 64 MB VRAM. I wonder why they dont bring at least a better resolution and 32 bit color in the basic driver.

    The "requirements" for Win8 also include a WDDM driver -- which is NOT available for Intel chipsets prior to the 945. Period. The Aero-like effects are the same I get with a 915 chipset -- and if you or they, check the display driver info in Device Manager, you will see that it does NOT say anything about Intel. Windows 8 REQUIRES WDDM drivers; the older chipsets had only XPDM drivers. So, the Win7 drivers will NOT work in Win8. I know, I've already tried them.
