Hi:

 

Did you try the W7 drivers from the printer's support and driver page?

 

HP is not supporting the W8 Consumer Preview with drivers of any kind.

Can't find a basic driver. Only big installation .exe which checks for the OS version and does not install because it's not reconising the OS

Hi:

 

Sometimes you have to get creative.

 

Did that file extract to a folder on your PC? 

 

If so, try to manually install it by updating the driver from the printer folder and browsing to that folder, or use a free program like 7-Zip and break down the executable into its parts.

 

You can try that select the printer from the list and the "Have Disk" prompt and browse to the folder where the drivers are.

 

That way you bypass the OS check.
