Bootleg of the Month

The desktop of Windows XP uE Speedlight v3

Windows XP uE Speedlight v3 is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by the now infamous cHiNoDuBy (real name: Alex Gonzalez). It released on March 9, 2010, and was added to the archive on November 15, 2023.

He is infamous in a certain community for allegedly displaying "narcissism" in his bootlegs (i.e. adding his name everywhere he can).

The bootleg is a stripped down Windows XP SP3 ISO, with DriverPacks BASE 8.12.5 integrated. It comes with a theme, some wallpapers, and some programs. It comes with several registry tweaks, which are both applied during setup and available after setup.

During setup, the aforementioned registry tweaks will get applied, and new license information will get applied (i.e. ProductId/DigitalProductId/LicenseInfo, /WPAEvents/OOBETimer, the works) over the old one.

On the first boot, several message boxes will appear before you, which inform you of the name of the bootleg you're using and the author's contact information.

It is unattended and preactivated. The bootleg was made using nLite, and the OOBE video was made with Windows Movie Maker 2.0.3312.0 on 2008-10-27 04:01:50 UTC.
