Hi, I had the same issue with my Lenovo T450 - Lenovo's modified drivers are very out of date (but also very stable) and will not allow non-Lenovo drivers to be installed over them.
Uninstall the video drivers from control panel, restart your laptop, then run the installer for the Intel drivers - should go through without issues.
1. Open Windows 10 Control Panel by typing control panel in search box and clicking Control Panel.
2. View by Small icons. Click Device Manager.
3. In Device Manager, expand category Display adapters. Right click on the Intel device and select Update Driver Software…
4. Click Browse my computer for driver software.
5. Click Browse button, and navigate to the location where you put the downloaded driver file. Then follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.
Use Windows Update for new drivers
Following steps are for your reference how to use Windows Update in Windows 10 to update drivers.
1. Click Start menu and click Settings.
2. In Settings Window, click Update & security.
3. In UPDATE & SECURITY, click Windows Update in left pane. In right pane, click Check for updates, and then wait while Windows looks for the latest updates for your computer.
4. Click the link that tells you optional updates are available. (If you don’t see this link, it means Windows Update didn’t find any updates for your computer.)
Hello YoungNick ,

I am having the same problem on my HP Envy x360 Model 15-u010dx laptop running Windows 10 Home 64-bit O.S.
The message says it is running a Windows 8 driver on my Windows 10 system:
The Intel HD Graphics Family Properties lists a Driver Date of 6/29/2015 and a Driver Version of 10.18.15.4248:
Both the HP and Intel installations fail with:
I have also tried going to the Device Manager and uninstalling the driver software. I have tried installing from my computer AND searching automatically for updated driver software and get the message:
The Intel HD Graphics Family Properties STILL lists a Driver Date of 6/29/2015 and a Driver Version of 10.18.15.4248.
Try installing the latest driver released and follow the steps from the link above to manually install the driver, you can download the latest driver here:
If you are not able to install the driver is because your computer manufacturer does not allow the installation of the Intel generic driver.
Well how disappointing. Since HP is blocking this update, I guess the answer is DO NOT BUY HP!!! Seems like intel could have a work around. A very sad and DISAPPOINTING non-solution...
Try uninstalling the driver first, you can follow the steps how to uninstall the driver here:
Uninstalling the Intel® Graphics Driver
After you uninstall the driver restart your system and then manually try to install the Intel generic driver.
