Wow, New Boss has Mac Laptop version X.7.2  and only wants to print to the 55DN.

HP support says that it does not support that Version.

Is there a way or trick for me to get this to happen?

OS X 10.7 supports HP Color LaserJet 5500 series printers out of the box. You do not need to install any extra software.

I assume the printer is already set up on the network.
You don't need an Installer.
Open System Preferences on the Mac then open Print & Scan. Click on the '+' to add the printer.

I have tried that but it wants the driver,

I have tried several different drivers including 3SI from the list only to have it fail.

OS X supposed to download and install the driver automatically at the time of printer setup. If it does not then you can download and install HP drivers manually:
