I have a hp dv6700t labtop with vista home premium. It really sucks so I want to get rid of it, but I don't want to spend $100 on xp, so where can I get xp pro for free? And is sp3 better than sp2? Will I have any problems putting it on or will I need some other sort of program/driver for it to while it is downloading?

All I can suggest is to call HP support and find out your options. There was a downgrade option but it was mainly for businesses
