A lot of people sell their recovery media on ebay. This could be used, the key works with it and it won't cost much, just make sure to find one with no SP. The SP level would be shown right on the disk label if existent.

Also, you could ask someone with a TechNet or MSDN access, they could provide ISO downloads of the 6.0.6000 - idea: let them control your computer with team viewer and have them access their account to download the ISO.

You are not allowed to use MSDN (not sure about TechNet) media for other purposes than evaluation or development, and on machine(s) not in your own realm, strictly seen.

Hmm, an ISO file is nothing without a key. I don't think MS would care if an MSDN customer shared his ISO with a friend as long as he does not share his key.
