So you're wanting to return to the original driver?
To do that open the Device Manager (accessible by right-clicking the Start Screen hot corner at the bottom left of the screen), find your video card and open its properties. On the Driver tab, choose Roll Back Driver and choose Yes when prompted. This will restore the default driver included with Windows 8.
As for a long-term solution, you might be able to install the Windows 7 driver using Have Disk (starting with the driver package in its original form--not with the modifications given in the Neowin tutorial). I haven't tested this with Intel graphics but it worked for my AMD card which refused to install the driver in any other way. This makes Windows see the Windows 7 driver as a compatible driver, rather than tricking it into thinking it is a true Windows 8 driver, so this might avoid the black screen issue you had with the other method.
