How to avoid Process Black when printing some Color & some B/W Pages in a single booklet

I am trying to print a booklet that has a color cover and b/w interior pages. 

 

My problem is that even though the inside pages are designed in greyscale with NO color information, the Xerox 7655 printer driver wrongly assumes that I want it to use process black (meaning it prints the greyscale edutalent images using cmy and black) for the inside pages.

 

More info:  A text only page using only black.  A page with text and clip art uses only black.  A page with any b/w jpg always prints in color.

 

I'd love to avoid the extra costs of printing b/w jpg's in color, but cannot find a workaround or a setting in illustrator, photoshop, publisher, corel draw, etc.  There is no setting in the printer driver to print page 1 in color and the rest in b/w either.

 

How can I avoid process black prints in a document with both color and b/w pages?

i dont think thats is possible with pdf documents , there is no such option in the driver i believe

have you tried a word document? that kind of document is ripped differently

are you sure the color of black is created by K color ?

 

offcourse upgrading to Fiery controllers , then this would be possible , but not on normal office machines

 

but i could be wrong though

Have had the same issue with WC7855.  Now we print the color and b/w pages as separate jobs and hand-collate them afterward.
