This may help. Depending on your version of windows 7 you may be able to run Windows XP as a virtual machine and still user your scanner under XP Mode. You will have to install the XP driver for your scanner on the XP virtual machine running on your Windows 7 computer.
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7.
Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs
and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping
realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by
extending the life of existing software.
HERE is the direct link to instructions on downloading and using XP Mode on Windows 7
Hi bjgestel ! This means there is no more support from HP for your unit under Windows 7 but Windows has a compatible driver included in it's system ( WIA ) . The scanner should run smooth but with some restrictive functions . Normaly , it should run without having installed the HP XP driver/ sofware . If this not your case , there is a workaround after you installed the XP driver and made sure installation was successfull . The scanner will need to run with a third party application . Download FreeKapture from http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html Launch Freekapture , clic on Scan , select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Your scanner will run . If you choose HP's software, program will hang . Note : no slides or negatives scans possible in WIA mode but the rest works . Good luck ! fanaudi .
Make sure driver XP ( yes , XP ) is correctly installed . Then , go to http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html and install FreeKapture , it's free . Load FreeKapture , clic on Scan and select WIA Hewlett-Packard . Scanner works fine in this mode . If you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang . In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works .

Don't wait for HP to produce compatible drivers for this unit , it's useless .Regards . Fanaudi .
Right now, the Konica-Minolta site lists the scanner as discontinued and has no drivers for Windows versions later than XP. The Microsoft Compatibility site lists it as "Information Coming Soon" You can try the generic driver that Windows will try to install (check if you need TWAIN or WIA drivers) or download the current driver and try installing it with XP SP3 compatability mode (right click on the file, select Properties, then the compatability tab.
If those fail, there is another option in Win7 Pro or Ultimate. Download and install the XP mode from Microsoft (2 downloads/installs). Then install the scanner inside the virtual computer running XP that results. You may need to save images to external media to share them between the two computers.
