    no graphics driver for i5 and Windows Server 2008 R2?



      a few months ago I build up a new machine for home work. The main use for it is Win7 and Visual Studio / Expression Studio. The i5 with its build in graphics was a cost efficient decision. Parallel a Windows Server 2008 R2 installation serves for a short look on server technologies. Now I bought a 24" display to have more room for all the visual studio windows. On Win7 everything is fine. But on the Server only standard resolution are available because there is no graphics driver from Intel. The result is a not usable picture, because text is blurred.


      Is Intel planning to deliver a graphics driver for their cpu internal graphics and Windows Server 2008 R2? It would be nice not to be forced to use enterprise hardware on development environments.

          I'm experiencing same difficulty...


          On my HP Proliant ML110 G6 (Chipset 3420 - CPU Pentium G6950 - Windows 2008 R2 Entreprise) the graphics working good only at a maximum of 1024x768 pixels with default Microsoft's drivers.

          It's impossible have better resolution because Intel HD Graphics drivers are not compatible with Windows 2008 R2.


          This is the log of my try-out installation with the lastest official Intel HD Graphics drivers ( :

          Hewlett Packard doesn't have any solution because there is no Intel HD Graphics official driver compatible.


          Windows compatibility mode doesn't working in Vista or Windows 2008/SP1 modes.


          I'm surprised theses drivers not working though Windows 2008 R2 share the same kernel and software base as Windows 7 64 bits !


          Can someone could help me, please ?

          Edit : It could be same problem with Core i3, i5 and maybe future i7 and all modern Intel HD Graphics chipsets...

          • 2. Re: no graphics driver for i5 and Windows Server 2008 R2?

            I have understand my problem...


            It's not related to CPU, but onboard graphic chip accompanying Intel 3420 chipset. A Matrox G200(eW).


            This GPU doesn't benefit official support and driver from Matrox after Windows XP. Microsoft offer a limited support (but functional) of this card with default VGA driver.




            I hope my experience can help...
