I've got a fairly new HP Pavillion DV8000. Of course it came with XP Media Center, and all of HP's added bullshit. I was thinking of formatting it and installing XP Pro Corporate. Anyone done this before? I've done it with every desktop PC I've had, but this is my first laptop. What are the chances that I won't be able to get everything working? I'm pretty sure that as long as I get the network "card" working I can figure out the rest. Any benefit in doing it other than the ton of HD space I'll free up? Anything else to look out for? Oh, and I did try it once before (without formatting) with my XP disc, but it wouldn't take the XP serial key for some reason. I know the key works, I just used it about 2 weeks ago on my desktop, but it's not exactly "legal". Will having Media Center on here somehow let the sytem know that the key I entered to install pro is not valid?
