Windows 8 Elite Black VR2 is a Windows bootleg edition created by Mohamed Elshinawy of Magic Team released in 2012.


The bootleg is a bootable Windows XP SP3 ISO that has a boot selector when you boot it up. It comes with Partition Magic 8.2, [email protected] Password Changer (Password Reset 3) and Norton Ghost 8.5. The first and last ones run off of a Windows ME RAM disk while the second runs off of FreeDOS. It is unattended and preactivated. This bootleg was made using Windows Unattended CD Creator 0.9.8. This bootleg comes with additional programs that you can install.

Despite the OS name being Windows 8, this bootleg has Windows 7 branding. The only Windows 8 related branding is in the log in wallpaper, which is from Windows 8 Milestone 3.

Changes from Windows XP
