I installed Windows 8 Customer Preview yesterday and now Minecraft is displaying this...

  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.

My video cards and java are up to date, I don't use any mods either.

You can probably get it to work, if you use drivers for windows 7, and you ge them directly from the manufacturer of your video cards site.

It works by updating the Card Drivers by going to Screen Resolution/Advanced Settings/Adapter/Properties/Driver/Update Driver...
This should work, because it worked at me. If doesn't, it means that Minecraft is incompatible with your Card Driver.

The game is compatible, but you need to update the video drivers to get OpenGL support.   The ones included in the preview don't.

When I click Properties, it just says something completely unrelated and obscure in the form of an un-needed error message.
