The first thing to do is install this HP Hotfix.  http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swItem=ob-54942-1&lang=en&cc=us&mode=3& The HPQFlash will update the BIOS and afterwards it has been reported that SP3 Update goes smoothly without loss of hardware functionality.

The BIOS file posted above does not seem to be for the 6720S. You really shouldn't need any hotfix or drivers to upgrade to SP3_simply install it from Windows Update.

 

Btw,all of your XP drivers,including BIOS are HERE
