I have used the method listed in the article you sent and it has worked in the past but since I have updated to 10.8.2 this method will not work. When I try to "auto select" or "select" it give me no options for drivers as it has in the past. Ive tried everthing I know to do.

According the list provided by Apple the Officejet 7130 not list as supported by the HP Print Drivers v2.13:
HP also not list the Officejet 7100 series or 7130 as supported model:
You may check the 3rd party HPIJS print drivers which seems to support your model:
Be sure to install any of the three downloads and follow the Set Up Instructions.
For scanning you may check the 3rd party Vuescan software which seems to support your scanner:

For some reason or another I tried these steps again and it pulled the Apple printer softwares up. By chance do you have to be connected to the internet in order for the Apple printer software to pull up?

Try it connected, it may have to download some data.

The suggestion from SholmiL allowed me to add an open-source driver for an old HP Officejet 7140xi All-in-One and to operate the printer in Mountain Lion. Before finding this I was trying, by trial and error, to use the generic printer drivers or the HP drivers for other printer models as a workaround. This allowed some basic functionality but I could not, for example, use both the color and two-sided printing features of the 7140 at the same time. The open souce driver for the HP 7100 series supports both the color printing and duplexing (two-sided printing) features.
After downloading and installing all three component packages (HPIJS, Foomatic-RIP, and Ghostscript) available at
I added the printer driver via the Print & Scan System Preferences panel, following these steps (in OS X 10.8):
The printer was connected to the local network via TCP/IP.
In the Print & Scan pane, I hit the "+" button to add a printer; in the "Add" dialog box, the printer was detected and appeared in a list of available printers. Click on the printer in this list.
There is a drop-down menu labeled "Use:" that allows you to select the driver; when I selected the "Automatic" option, the correct driver (in this case named "HP Officejet 7100 Series hpijs, 18.104.22.168") was selected.
This driver can also be selected manually from the same drop-down menu.
Once you install the open-source drivers, the official printer drivers that come with the OS and/or are available through Apple Software Update appear in the "Use:" drop-down menu alongside the open-source drivers from the HPIJS package.
Thanks for pointing me to the HPIJS page. Very helpful.
