Default if you upgrade with a haswell xeon with a igpu

if you upgrade to a haswell xeon with a igpu keep this in mind, the igpu p4600 is different than the haswell core series 4000 graphics. What I mean is that the standard graphics drivers for the core series do not work with the igpu. You will need to use the windows update drivers to get graphics capability. The reason I say this is that turned on processor graphics just to see if my latest core series drivers would work. No dice. Then when I went to device manager, there was a whql driver for the igpu (version 3979) installed. I couldn't check if the intel graphics system tray app was there since i still had discrete graphics installed. But it does install a fully working driver.
