I know it's been a while, but i've successfully gotten Intel HD Graphics to work on Vista. All you need to do is get the XP 32 or 64 bit drivers and copy the hardware ids in the .inf to the nt6 section. It installs and hardware acceleration is present. Though you'll need to manually enable aero through a reg hack.

"<snip>get the XP 32 or 64 bit drivers and copy the hardware ids in the .inf to the nt6 section."

 

If I might ask, why would XP Driver INF's have an "NT6" section? This makes no sense. :unsure:

 

"<snip>you'll need to manually enable aero through a reg hack."

 

If I might ask, where's the reference to the hack? Where in the registry, or do people have to search WWW/MSFN?

 

:( You're post is providing no help to others, as it lacks any direct info/instructions/links.
