I want to upgrade my Win7 dsktop to Windows 10

However I’ve seen quite a few complaints about graphics issue

I ran speccy and it reports

Intel® Q45/Q43 Express Driver version: 8.15.10.2302

I went to http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/ and followed through with the requested information

It reports compatibility for Windows 8 and 8.1

Does that mean I shouldn’t bother upgrading to Windows 10?

It may work, just have a fallback image of some kind

I was thinking the same way so I guess that's what I'll do

Its always good to have a fallback, if you can use more then one disk and do some cloning it could help

It will most likely still work as WDDM 1.0 to 2 drivers are supported, but you will not get DirectX 12, but still have a fallback.

"It will most likely still work as WDDM 1.0 to 2 drivers are supported, but you will not get DirectX 12"

--- That's what I'm counting on and I understand I will not have DirectX 12

Intel Q45/Q43 non-WDDM 1.1 driver for Windows 10 with OpenGL support?

 

I'm getting a Minecraft error* when I try to run it on my HP machine. I tried upgraded version and fresh install; both windows installations fail. I tried to force install several Windows 7 drivers, but non of them are accepted on Windows 10.

 

As far as I can tell, Minecraft needs OpenGL which is not supported in the default Microsoft WDDM 1.1 drivers. If you know differently, please share :)

* error = Pixel format not accelerated

Windows does support OpenGL but only 1.4 or lower. The drivers usually provide higher OpenGL version support

 

However, Intel usually does not provide OpenGL support to some of the older integrated cards

 

Lets see if there is a version of drivers that we can use

 

Download the Intel Driver Update Utility here

 

Now, after it is installed, open Intel Driver Update Utility from the Start menu, and see if there is an update available

 

If there is, then it might provide full OpenGL support :)

 

If it doesn't, then well, there is not much you can do, except use older version of minecraft that do support your OpenGL version
