installing printer on windows 7?

my hp deskjet f300 series cd came out before windows 7 and on the cd it says "windows 98se, me, 2000, xp" My question is, with windows 7, will I still have to insert the cd into the computer in order to install the printer? I plugged in the USB and it says it's installing the software (haven't inserted cd) ...so will it work without the cd?

    If windows 7 was fully installed, no CD will be necessary

    It will work. But please take note! The full functionality and features might not be available if you didn't install the CD. That's why the printer always comes with a CD and updates the drivers in manufacturer's website for patch and fixes.
