    I think you should go by the simple language , it states that it does not recognize the drivers , so you should install the printer driver, if you have already installed it then please uninstall it again and then download it from the hp printer support. But before downloading check your printer name and ensure that you are installing the correct version of your printer drivers.

    I think you should just go through printer properties and then begin the print server properties, well it is always better o launch the server properties than adding the printer. In the Start search box type run and hit enter then in the console type the command printui /s /t1, but bear in mind that you should not run as admin before you execute this command. Then from there you can share your printer remotely after using \\remote\printshare command after adding it to the local port.

    I think you are facing this issue because you are not authenticated properly i.e the network does not recognize your shared printer in the network layer. So in that case what you can do is you can install a 32 bit Windows 7 version driver. So you will have to create a printer profile that is being recognized by the USB port or The LPT then check whether it can be shared or not. You can also install the Windows 7 on the home network as well .
