HP Laserjet 1320 Printer and Windows 10

I have an HP Laserjet 1320 printer that i would like to print to Windows 10 clients in an Active Directory Domain. This printer doesn't have Windows 10 drivers.  Could I setup a Windows server on the domain as a print server to accomplish this?  If so, how can I do this or is there a better way?  Other printers with Windows 10 drivers in the Domain are printing via TCP-IP.

There are Windows 10 Drivers on this HP support page. Did you try them? Both 32-bit and 64-bit available.

The Windows 10 driver is only a communications driver for Windows 8 and higher and the other driver listed is an Admistrator Resource Kit.  I need a way to deploy this printer driver to 30-35 Windows 10 laptops that are members of a DOMAIN.

We use HP Printer Drivers on our Server 2012 machines and then all clients can use them. Does that not work for you?  Our HP Printers are more modern than the 1320 so I have not tried it.

I have Server 2008 machines.  Can I install the 1320 on one of those servers and share the printer through that server?  Do you have the server set up as a print server to do this?

Install it and set it to Share. Use the name HP gives it. Make sure it has a static IP address and then users should be able to install it.

Thanks.  There is a driver for Server 2008 R2.  The server would then accomplish the printing for the Windows 10 clients.  Is this correct?

The driver I posted the link to should work on Server 2008. HP normally allows drivers to work on a lower OS. Try it.

Doesn't that printer have a built-in Print Server (NIC)? If so I would connect it directly to the LAN and configure your DHCP server to give it a reserved IP Address. Then you can connect to that IP directly on the Windows 10 PC's via "Control Panel", "Devices and Printers", "Add a Printer". If the Printer isn't found automatically, click on "The printer that I want isn't listed", enable "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address", then input it's IP Address, and allow it to query the printer. Once you have it listed you can either select a driver from a list, or you can search for it via Windows updates. Most HP printer drivers are available directly via Windows updates, so enable that and wait for the search to complete (can take rather long). After that you should be able to select the proper driver from the list.

The HP LaserJet 1320 is PCL 5 compatible, so you could use the HP Universal Print Driver or UPD for PCL 5.

Or, you could download the driver from the Microsoft Update Catalog:
https://catalog.update.microsoft.com/

I searched that site for "laserjet 1320" and found a long list of drivers, but the 1320 drivers were at the top of the list:
https://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=laserjet%201320

The 1320 PCL 5 driver is also available within Windows 10 if you click on "Windows Update" button in the add driver or add printer wizard. This screenshot is from a Windows 10 Enterprise machine, but I imagine you would be able to add the print driver in the same way on Server 2012 & 2008:
