I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
