Intel officially supplies no graphics drivers for Windows 10 on 2nd gen processors. There is some overlap between the 2nd gen and 3rd gen iGFX support, however, and this may be to your favor. Someone mentioned yesterday that, though there is nothing on the Intel site, there might be an updated Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver available via the Microsoft Windows Update catalog. If this is actually the case, feel free to try it (I think you have to manually download and install it yourself).
