I'm afraid it's impossible. You shoud restore some registry keys, some drivers, some.... It will be easier to install those printers from scratch.

You will need to restore the system state along with any driver files required for those printers.

I have a customer with 170 printers on a print server some with finishers, staplers extra trays I certainly wouldn't want to set them all up again after a server crash.
