Solved Win7 and HP MFP CM1017

Specs: Windows XP, Core 2 duo T5550/1.83Mhz/3GB ram
Does anyone out there have a HP colour laserjet CM1017 MFP and able to run it on a pc with Win7 as the operating software? I have two XP machines with no issue but I recently bought a Toshiba laptop with Win 7 pro and of course, no drivers for this printer. Tried to search on HP website but the only work around , involving Vista, has been removed. Damned annoying that these printer companies can come out with new hardware and drivers but no drivers for hardware that is only a couple of years old.

No it hasn't. The instructions for performing the workaround are still there. There is no specific driver available at that link because such a driver never existed for Win7. You download the Full Software Solution for Windows Vista from here if you don't have it on CD:

32-bit and 64-bit Vista

Then apply that driver package on Windows 7 as per the Workaround Instructions:
