Black XP 7 Gold (called "Windows XP Black SP2 Version 7.0 Gold Edition" in the changelog) is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created as part of the Black XP series, by Kirk. It released on December 29, 2007, and was added to the archive on January 26, 2024.

Description

The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO with DriverPacks, RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack 2.1.11 and OnePiece IE7 Update Pack 1.7.0 integrated. It comes with many programs, themes and wallpapers, and fonts included. It is dark-themed, and is also themed to Windows Vista.

It comes with 2 WPIs, with 11 pre-included themes. The first one is just niceties and other miscellaneous things, while the second is the actual pre-installed optional software, along with registry tweaks.

It also comes with its own autorun. Through it, you can launch WPI 2, install Nero 8.2.8 Full (really Nero 8.1.1.0 trial) and browse the DVD.

It is unattended and preactivated. The bootleg was made using nLite 1.4 on Windows XP SP2 and Windows Unattended CD Creator 0.9.8, and the autorun was made with AutoPlay Media Studio.
