Hi, hope someone can help me with this.
Windows 7 on my iMac is phenomenal but when i tried to install the windows 7 64 bit drivers for the HP OfficeJet 4500 Wireless i bumped in to a really weird problem the setup says that the USB ports are not working properly, besides the fact that they are working correctly i don't even want to use them.
I only want to use the wireless so how do i pass or bypass the system requirements check from HP Setup???
they use to have a selection menu what to use before the check but that's history i guess
Installing it without the HP software wireless works fine but i cant use the scanner, if their is a way to install the scanner without HP software that would be great.
but it would be even greater if i can bypass the whole system requirements check from the HP installer really weird by the way because all other software system checks seem to have no problems with the USB ports from my iMac and all usb devices work correctly.

Hi, may I know if you are using bootcamp or running virtualization software such as parallels desktop or VM ware fusion on your system? There shouldn't be any issue with the USB port if you are using bootcamp. However, when using virtualization software, the USB emulation functionality may not work. You will need to refer back to the software vendor.
Regarding your request to skip the minimum system check screen, you can download the IT professional driver located in the following URL
Enterprise driver will only install the print and scan driver, which is what you require.

You can try this workaround to bypass the USB check:
- Insert the CD, create one folder in your hard drive,
- Copy the entire CD and paste into the folder you created in your hard drive.
- Then remove "USBready utlity" from Setup folder on the hard drive,then launch Setup from the hard drive.
