The .INF file is often just the steps to install with pointers to the programs needed. It would be as fast and as reliable to just use the printer driver.

Most suppliers provide a basic driver and that is what you need. I do not think you can build a driver from an INF file . That is not its purpose

It depends on the operating system. For Windows 7 run the Windows Printer Update from the Printer Management tab in Devices and Printers. This installs most basic printer drivers. I have done this. Try doing this before imaging.

From what I read in the article, that is what you get when you run the Windows Printer Update that I suggested above.

When you ask a question, tell people you have no internet access. You did NOT say this.
