    No Intel HD Graphics 620 Driver for Windows 8.1?


      I recently bought a laptop with the new Kaby Lake processor (i7-7500U) and after a brief looking into Intel's website I found out that there is no graphics driver for Intel HD Graphics 620 for Windows 8.1, only for Windows 10. Are we going to see any drivers in the future (7500U has just been released so no drivers for its graphic unit is acceptable) or Intel is not going to release for Windows 8.1?

          Hello NTkot ,
          The driver is available for Windows®8.1; you can download it at the following link:
          Note: The driver or software for your Intel® component might have been changed or replaced by the computer manufacturer. We recommend you work with your computer manufacturer before installing our driver so you don’t lose features or customizations.
          Best wishes,

            I'm sorry, after doing some reviewing I can see that it is available for Windows®10 only on 7th generation processors. you can see here:https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26404/eng/ReleaseNotes_GFX_154010.4542.pdf

            It will not be available for Windows® 8.1, only for Windows®10 on 7th generation

              You can use drivers for Windows 10 64bit (only 64bit, as far as I know) for Windows 8.1 (should be possible also to install them on Windows 8, but I haven't test it). I use the driver win64_154512.4552.zip and the make following changes in file igdlh64.inf (in folder Graphics):

              1. after line 203 add:

              2. after line 786 add:

              3. reboot your PC using "Advanced Startup" (Settings -> Change PC Settings -> Update and recovery -> Recovery -> Advanced Startup)

              4. go to: Troubleshoot -> Advanced Options -> Startup Settings -> click Restart and after restart hit F7 (option 7)

              5. after reboot in Windows open Device Manager and choose update driver (right click on MS video driver) -> choose Browse... -> choose Let me pick... -> open have disk and choose already edited igdlh64.inf (in folder Graphics) and confirm that you agree that driver is not digitally signed.


              p.s.: hope that Intel will solve this problem soon.

                Thank you for that information IvoMp, I posted in another thread where a customer was able to modify the INF and it worked.
                Best regards,

                  Thanks IvoMp, your solution was the only one that worked for me.

                    Thanks for the post IvoMp.


                    I know this thread is a few months old, but I am trying to do the same thing noted here with the slightly newer HD Graphics 630 chipset. See No Intel HD Graphics 630 drivers for Windows 8.1? Looking for any hints on how to get started with a similar mod so that my machine will also recognize its internal GPU under Windows 8.1. For example, how did you locate or come up with the value:


                         %iKBLULTGT2%    = iKBLD_w81, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_5916


                    in your post above? Willing to spend the time if someone can point me in the right direction.
