Although I am an HP Support Engineer, I am speaking for myself and not for HP.

I have just succesfully found a solution to making the laser jet 1000 work under windows 7 64bit
The trick is that you need a GDI driver and finding a supplier ( other than HP ) who has built one.
Go to the following link and download the windows 7 64 bit driver for the following printer
search desktop printer -> magicolor 2430DL ->drivers -> windows 7 64bit
KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2430DL
install the drivers
Add the printer as you would normally and then
under printer properties select advanced and under print processor select winprint raw
The reason this works is that this printer uses the same hardware GDI engine as the lasjet 1000

The way I have it set up is that my laserjet 1000 is plugged into a seperate old PC running windows 2000 with laserjet 1000 drivers loaded on it as its shared by various household computer ranging from Macbook to XP and now windows7.
I connect to it on windows 7 by adding a local printer and direct mapping it by creating a new port and putting in the box
\\servername or ip address\printersharename
set up the properties as I precviously described and it works fine
Note direct USB connection does not work
If I have some time to kill , I'll see if I can get the direct USB to work

i'm happy i've found a way to work with my printer.
i have some doubts after your explanation.
After selecting winprint raw, what should i do to use the hp1000?
will it work attached usb to my pc?
