Integrated HD Graphics 3000 (Sandy) on Z75 Motherboard (Ivy), with PCI-E GPU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When I purchased my P67 motherboard a while back I didn't really think much about the HD Graphics and was more than happy to just forget about them as a whole, since I have been using dedicated graphics for years.

I've recently replaced my motherboard with a Z75, and I'm curious about getting it to run the iGPU along with my GTX 550 Ti for a 3rd monitor. I've tried installing the graphics drivers from the Motherboard's website, but it says I do not meet the system requirements with the following error.

I've not gotten around to updating my sig rig just yet, as things are subject to change, so here are some quick specs.
-Intel i7-2600K
-GTX 550 Ti (1GB)
-ASRock Z75 Pro 3
-Windows XP Professional 32-Bit
-Spare 8600 GT (512MB)
I don't believe any more is relevant, but if more is needed to determine anything, please simply let me know.

I have an extra GPU I can put in my second PCI-E slot if this does not work, but I do believe the HD Graphics 3000 are capable enough and would be a better option in terms of efficiency to run a single extra display at 1280x1024 with just 2D windows.

I'm not too sure what I should do first, but after I'm done with a few things I'm going to remove the GTX and try booting up through the on-board video, and then try to install the drivers from there. I believe that would be the good first step.

Are there any compatibility issues with using Sandy Graphics on an Ivy Motherboard that I should know about?
Drivers are available for XP in both 32-Bit and 64-Bit variations for my Motherboard, and I'm lead to believe with the minimal research I have done on this that Windows XP does support multiple GPUs, but if there are any potential incompatibilities with anything, please let me know. I'd love to stick with XP, but if 7 is required to get the integrated graphics running alongside the GTX I'll install it.

Just an update to anyone who may have been or could still be curious, this does indeed work. Win Vista/7/8 isn't required.
I tested it out while I was reinstalling Windows. Been busy lately, or else I'd have done it much sooner. Damn, 2 weeks was long.

I now kind of wish I went with a Z68 Motherboard instead of a P67 a couple of years ago, for a while that third monitor was collecting dust.
