Intel has preliminary drivers supporting Microsoft Windows* 7 Betaincluded with the Beta for the following Intel integrated graphics controllers:
However, since Microsoft Windows 7 is a Beta version, testing and optimizations are ongoing and therefore may have unintended effects on your system. Intel will begin support when Microsoft launches the production versions of this operating system.
Currently, these drivers are only included inside the Windows 7 Beta operating system and are not available for individual download.
Though not supporting all Intel integrated graphics controllers, production versions of Intel drivers for Windows 7 will be made available for download from the Intel support web site when Microsoft has launched production versions of the Windows 7.

i've been using Windows 7 Beta for a couple of months now and been using the vista drives for my x3100 graphics core.
My guess is that there will be almost a copy and paste between the vista and 7 drives seeing as 7 aims to be application and driver compatible with vista.
thank you, i upgraded vista business to 7 Beta about 2 months ago, been working in a production environment with it but have had severe display problems with my Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family, so activated the (seemingly cached) drivers for vista (because the setup file says wrong os) and all the problems seem to have disappeared.
thank you again.
OK, let's say you are bonehead like me that, in testing some W7 drivers for an external display adapter, has somehow damaged the GMA 500 driver installation and I need to refresh it. Any hints where I might grab the latest driver kit? I'm really trying to avoid reinstalling the W7 kit as I don't want other variables to change on me.
Now I'm beginning to suspect that the W7 driver problem I'm seeing may not be due to the driver for the add-on hardware but the beta W7 GMA 500 driver itself. I decided to try a different add-on display and found the GMA 500 driver was once again clobbered by the add-on. It looks similar to an enumeration problem I saw once back in the Vista RC days.
Is there ANYBODY in Intel following this thread? Can you connect me with the driver writer? Was the W7 driver done by Tungsten also? Who owns it?
Getting worried that this won't be looked at before W7 releases...
The drivers for Windows* 7 Release Candidate have been posted to support.intel.com. These are WHQL'd drivers and will work with the following chipsets.
