Oh, I see. I think I misunderstood your request originally:
If I've understood correctly [this time] you _haven't_ run the installer
yet and would like to (may apologies, didn't read your message carefully
Create a file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intellinuxgraphics.list
with the following contents:
deb https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/14.04/main trusty main #Intel Graphics drivers
apt-get install i915-3.16-3.13-dkms
Will get you the i915 driver update.
Ubuntu _does_ ship with the standard i915 driver, but it's part of the
kernel package, not a separate i915-* package.
There are other packages too, you can install them or not with apt:
libegl1-mesa libegl1-mesa-drivers libgbm1 libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx libglapi-mesa libgles1-mesa libgles2-mesa libopenvg1-mesa libosmesa6 libwayland-egl1-mesa libxatracker2 xserver-xorg-video-intel libdrm-intel1 libdrm-nouveau2 libdrm-radeon1 libdrm2 libva-drm1 libva-egl1 libva-glx1 libva-tpi1 libva-wayland1 libva-x11-1 libva1 va-driver-all vainfo i965-va-driver intel-gpu-tools
If you remove or disable current graphics card and remove drivers, and then reinstall Ubuntu from DVD or thumb drive, 14.04 will recognize the Intel CPU with the Haswell graphics and bring you up with the Ubuntu 14.04 graphics interface. Unlike nVidia cards/drivers (for example), the Haswell graphics do not use proprietary drivers.
Is there some way of fixing the install using the live disk without having to resort to a full re-install?
Ok, so two things:
1) We're kind of leaving the area of "Intel Graphics Installer" related issues, so it might be worth
moving this to the advanced forum
2) What's the exact situation here? From your other post it seems to me like maybe you
have 2 GPUs in your system and only one is intel? (You said your graphics card was fried)
If you do have 2 GPUs and the non-intel one is fried, you don't really need to run the installer:
You should already have an i915 driver in your kernel module tree - it's more likely to be a configuration
problem, someting like X still being configured to drive your other card (or your card being detected
even though its broken).
To fix that I'd recommend blacklisting the kernel module that is responsible for the dead card
and rebooting, and maybe reconfiguring/reinstalling X et al. Hard to say for sure without more
