creating WinXP accessible 5550DN printer on a 2008R2 Print server

HP Recommended

I am trying to move all our printers from a 2003 print server to a 2008 print server, all have gone easily except our 5550DN Colour Laserjet.

 

Each time I try to connect to it from an XP machine it gives the following message.

 

"The server for the 'HP Universal Printing PCL 6 (v5.6.0)' printer does not have the correct printer driver installed. If you want to search for the proper driver, click OK. Otherwise, click Cancel and contact your network administrator or original equipment manufacturer for the correct printer driver."

 

So, I have downloaded the correct driver from the HP drivers website, but when I click OK to install it it gives the message

"Windows cannot locate a suitable printer driver. Contact your administrator for help locating and installing a suitable driver."

 

 

 

I have also tried installing it on the print server using the "additional Drivers" button on the properties page. Each time it asks for the driver and when I try to  install the X86 drivers it gives the following message.

"The specified location does not contain the driver HP Universal Printing PCL 6(v5.6.0) for the requested processor architecture."

 

 

I am at a loss. Does anyone have a procedure for doing this that has worked for them? Particularly with this specific printer?
