Windows Dream Vista 3 is the sequel to Windows Dream Vista 2, which was created by the same author as the last one. It released 7 months after Windows Dream Vista 2 did, and was added to the archive on December 22, 2022.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO. It is the sequel to Windows Dream Vista 2, and the final release in the Dream Vista trilogy. A major change has been introduced to the OS - a brand new boot selector! It comes with unique graphics and has Arabic language. It comes with a "Mini XP" (just the Mini Windows XP from an old version of Hiren's Boot CD gutted out), Norton PartitionMagic Pro Server 8.05 Build 1371, Smart FDISK 2.05 (mislabeled Smart FDisck), and Symantec Ghost 11.5.1 (cracked, registered to Imran I jaz).

The first boot routine has changed slightly. Instead of booting straight into the desktop, the autorun will be run on startup. It only appears once. Through it, you can install extra programs along with many customization utilities.

The ISO was made using nLite, the autorun was made with AutoPlay Media Studio, and the boot selector used was EasyBoot 5.1.
