As Part of the standard install, when the HP software begins to load it extracts all of the simple drivers to a folder (usually root C, or within a temp folder). If you find this folder then you can lift the drivers and make a silent install.

hi guys, thanks for the anwers. i tried the proposed solutions but i'm still having troubles with the silent installation.
i downloaded the latest driver from the website and started the installation. i founded the installation folder, but this is the same folder that came with the printersoftware cd. Don't know how i can do an silent install with this?
don't know what you mean with "AiO" software, but already tried -silent, but the installation starts normally.

Have you tried just using the hp universal print driver? This is world reknowned for working with almost all devices.

1. Download the basic host-based driver from HP website
2. on a computer, run the executable. On the screen where you have to accept the License (the first screen): DO NOTHING and leave it open
3. open an explorer and browse to your personal TEMP folder (if you don't know what is your personal temp folder: open a command prompt and type 'echo %temp%' without the ''
4. in that temp folder, there should be a folder which was just created when you opened the driver executable. That is the folder which contains the driver. Copy that folder to another place. (for example: to c:\hpdriver) (you can share it on the network if you want)

5. now, to install the driver silently by command line:
rundll32.exe printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /f c:\hpdriver\HP1100.INF /ia /m "HP LaserJet Professional P1566"
(where c:\hpdriver\ is the location of that folder you have copied)
