Windows Black Heart is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by Ahmed Hamdy. It released on February 14, 2008, and was added to the archive on August 9, 2022.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO, which comes with a boot selector integrated. Through it, you can access various system utilities such as Partition Magic 8.0, Norton Ghost 2003, Norton Commander 5.0 and others. It styles the OS with some hearts (hence the name), and with a Windows Vista theme. This bootleg comes with a Windows Vista looking theme and software. It is unattended and preactivated.

The ISO was made using nLite, the boot selector used was Aero Studio 2007 and the autorun was made with AutoPlay Media Studio 7.1.1000.0.
