    Old Intel video drivers


    I have a P4 with Intel 82915 graphics, and i'tried Windows 8 on it. It installed without problems, but the video hardware not recognized by Windows 8. I tried a trick wich works under Windows 7, if the video not supports officially:


    I download the XP driver, install, but the installer breaks with "This operating system not supported". No problem, i show the driver installation directory to update drivers in device manager, and the driver installs, and works properly. This trick works for me on many old PC models under Windows 7. But on Windows 8 this trick don't works. The device manager starts driver installations like under Windows 7, but after some seconds stops with "This operating system not supported" message.


    I there any solution to install old video drivers under Windows 8?
