Intel 945GM Display Driver for Windows 98

Intel GMA 900/950 Driver for Windows 98/ME
Interestingly, Intel's deprecation of Windows 98 appears to be more or less artificial in the ICH7 chipset family. This very driver allows Windows 98 to properly display the 945GM Express Chipset Family! However, this driver must be installed manually because of the program's artificial OS blocker! Be sure to follow the instructions given in the description.

Windows 98 can now run on 2006-era laptops!
Utilize Intel Core Solo (Yonah), Duo (Yonah), and Core 2 Duo (Merom) CPU's!

-You must install the driver manually from device manager and directed into the Windows 2000 folder because the driver installer's program has an artificial OS block for Windows 9x!
-LoneCrusader's INF files MUST be installed on the hard disk and whatever IDE controllers are present! If you fail to do this, Windows 98/ME will be stuck on the default resolution and 16 colors until otherwise!
-Driver does NOT support 3D acceleration it appears; attempting to play 3D games displays a glitched screen.


The INF Chipset must be installed first!
