Installing Intel Graphics driver on Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials

Setting up a Desktop PC as a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Server and not able to install the default Graphic card driver from HP.  The setup will not work either from the Intel website, but this is an old i7 processor using the onboard Intel HD 2000 graphics processors.


First you need to install the Windows Server Essentials Experience

Server Manager -> Manage (Tab) -> Add Roles and Features

Click through until "Server Roles" and then tick the "Windows Server Essentials Experience" (near the bottom)

Server might need a restart

Then download the driver direct from Intel here I am using the x64 bit driver from:-

Intel HD Graphics 2000 for 2nd Generation Intel Core Processors

Just run the setup and all should install correctly.
