    A clean install of Windows is recommended. I don't think you will find W8 drivers for Skylake.
    I don't think there are any drawbacks of using W8.1 instead of W8.

    Not really more Metro. For instance you can boot directly to desktop in W8.1. There are ways to avoid the telemetry, as described in this forum.

    Windows 8 is not supported anymore and won't recieve any more updates.

    okey working solution AT YOUR OWN RISK
    1)extract intel hd drivers
    2) go to "Graphic" foulder and find *.inf file
    3) open it with notepad, you wil find something like that:
    "
    ;=====================================================================
    ; Windows 7 Install - DT Only
    ;=====================================================================
    [IntelGfx.NTamd64.6.1]
    ; SKL HW
    %iSKLHaloGT2% = iSKLD_w7, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191B&SUBSYS_06E41028
    %iSKLHaloGT2% = iSKLD_w7, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191B&SUBSYS_06E51028
    %iSKLWSGT2% = iSKLD_w7, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191D&SUBSYS_06E41028
    %iSKLWSGT2% = iSKLD_w7, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191D&SUBSYS_06E51028
    ;=====================================================================
    ; Windows 8 Install - DT Only
    ;=====================================================================

    ;=====================================================================
    ; Windows 8.1 Install - DT Only
    ;=====================================================================
    [IntelGfx.NTamd64.6.3]
    ; SKL HW
    %iSKLHaloGT2% = iSKLD_w81, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191B&SUBSYS_06E41028
    %iSKLHaloGT2% = iSKLD_w81, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191B&SUBSYS_06E51028
    %iSKLWSGT2% = iSKLD_w81, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191D&SUBSYS_06E41028
    %iSKLWSGT2% = iSKLD_w81, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_191D&SUBSYS_06E51028
    ; Included for standard DT builds
    "
    4)i painted win 8.1 text with red, just paste same text in win8 part
    5)Run Command Prompt as Admin.Type:
    bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS (enter)
    bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON (enter)
    6)Reboot, then install the driver and reboot again after install finish.
    7)Enable again the Driver Signature Enforcement:Code:
    bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS (enter)
    bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF (enter)

    You're welcome. Its good to see if you're into modifying inf files. But be sure not to install intel GFX UI to avoid possible BSoDs, to be safe just install the driver only.
    You can disable telemetry safely, there is little telemetry such as speech and ink and some diags and logs.

    I bet you can find download links for latest ISOs from MS itself. Its not worth to cause hardware failure due to incorrect registry mods.

    Why dont you upgrade to 8.1 instead of going through all of this?

    Windows 8.1 = Service Pack for Windows 8

    And it'll install itself after installing all of the windows updates for Windows 8 multiple times

    If you're worried about telemetry with it just download DWS and change your windows update to receive only important updates
