Hp scanjet 5400c windows 7 driver

No drivers available thru HP, there nust be a generic or universal driver that must work.
This scanner is like new, works fine with XP so I would really like to continue to use it.
Ifthere is n way to do this I could use a suggestion of a compareable or better scanner to purchase.
Thanks

  1. Unfortunately, if HP is not providing drivers for this printer, then you are out of luck. You might be able to use some generic black and white printer drivers, but you will lose access to many of the more advanced features.

    If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, using the XP mode it might be possible to kind of end run the issue, however this will be a stopgap solution at best, so it may be time to consider a new printer.
  2. The scanner may be "like new", but the 5400C was released almost a decade ago(2003?). You may be able to dual boot. and use XP to scan. You won't be able to use XP drivers on a Win7 machine.

    The one idea that follows doesn't seem to work, maybe I did it wrong:
