As you seem to be aware, windows 8 is not yet available as an official release, therefore drivers that directly support it are not available as of yet. The fact that it worked with the developer preview and not the consumer preview is a great example of how this is a preview environment and not expected to fully support all devices. If Microsoft has an area to report issues or to provide comments, feedback, or bugs with spefiic products, I'd recommend posting there as well so there is an awareness made on that front. There simply is not a scope of support for unreleased products or ones that are in testing stages unfortunately.
If my post helped you in any way, please click the blue KUDOS star under my name! It would mean a great deal. 🙂

Really Thanks God
i Found solution of this problem Randomly only by praying 🙂
Connect The p1005 printer to a pc have windows 7 and print a page with it and get the cable connected to windows 8 after that and go to control panel > hardware and sounds > Device and printer > hp laser jet p1005 Right click > Printer properties > ports > uncheck bidirectional support then press ok and print ,, it works 🙂 🙂 🙂
Note : after doing the pervious steps if u turned the printer off u will need to connect it to windows 7 pc again and print and connect it to windows 8 it will work without the pervious steps //
it seems like if windows 7 gives it information that is reseted after turn it off
we wish windows 8 to solve this problem nearly

Anyone with more printer knowledge / skills - maybe you can dig into this more? - a solution might just be an option or two away!
