Default Mini 1010 and Windows 8 GMA driver - 09-20-2011, 12:11 AM

I just put windows 8 on my mini 10 and can't install the gma driver. I've tried several downloads and either get the "this operating system is not supported" error or the "does not meet the minimum requirements" error. Anyone have an idea what to do? I've got an HD screen that looks like crap right now and want the full resolution.

For anyone else looking, I figured it out. I had to run it in compatibility mode. I wasn't able to do that until I extracted the zip

Which driver did you install in compatibility mode? I can't seem to find one that gets past the OS check, even after decompressing (ZIP and EXE) packages and trying them compatibility mode...
