The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Hey, I have recently installed Windows 8 as my main OS and I have found out that Minecraft doesn't work, I have re-installing my drivers but it doesn't do anything, this is the error I get:
Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

I had it working on Windows 8 just the other day. I recently reset my computer and now I get this same error! I also have a Intel(R) HD Graphics (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) and it worked just the other day! Until I reset. It is making me mad because it worked just the other day! I also need help!
Ok I'll make this quick. The drivers that are labeled (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.x) DO NOT HAVE OPENGL SUPPORT!!!!!!
For users of Windows 7 and Vista, all you have to do is go to Intel's site and download your graphics drivers. This has been said a thousand times on this and several other forums, and a quick google search would had found this.
For Windows 8 users. The same situation applies as above, except you need to find the Win8 Beta/Preview drivers, which only support HD 2000/3000/4000 CPU integrated graphics (as in Sandy and Ivy Bridge CPUs only). All of the older chipsets are currently unsupported for Win8, and will not be available later unless they support DX10 (or possibly even DX11) as a requirement.
