Tomato Garden XP 3.0 is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by TomatoLei. It released on April 9, 2008, and was added to the archive on November 1, 2022.

The release is notable since it's the only known copy of YlmF Tomato Garden XP to be released in English. Every other release was in Chinese (though, the boot selector and WinPE is still in Chinese). This release wasn't widely distributed and is very rare.

Description

The OS is a modified Windows XP SP2 distribution. It comes with one new theme and some programs.

On first boot, Device Manager will open.

It comes with a boot selector integrated. Through it, you can access Symantec Ghost 11.0.2 Corporate Edition (cracked, registered to Brad Smith), the YLMF boot disk (and NTFS for DOS), Symantec PartitionMagic 8.05 build 192 and Disk Manager 9.57.

The ISO was made using nLite, the boot selector used was EasyBoot, and the autorun was made with AutoPlay Menu Loader 5.1.0.341.
