Windows 8* Consumer Preview in-box graphics driver feedback
@Michael Jarmey: You can now find a Windows 8 compatible driver for Intel HD Graphics 1000 - first gen hardware on the Microsoft Update Catalog site. The driver available there is version 126.96.36.19958 dated 10/9/2012 but requires the final (NOT beta or RC) release of Windows 8. Somewhat overdue for Microsoft with Intel's cooperation to finally release a Win8 driver for 1st gen intel hd grahics devices.
