Windows 7: Laserjet driver

Laserjet driver

I have an elderly (approx 3 years old) , but perfectly functioning HP Laserjet 1000. I understand that HP have not, and will not, issue a Win 7 driver update for this machine. I do not want to have to buy a new printer, when this one works brilliantly. My question is, if I install XP on a separate partition, and reinstall the Laserjet, will it work? And are there any implications in running two different operating systems on the same computer, please?
TIA Kimig

No... you may certainly do this, but I would look for a vista driver and install it in Vista Compatibility Mode first...
