Windows Extreme Seven 2009 is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by Jcberry526 of CyberWareZ. It released on November 13, 2008, and was added to the archive on August 7, 2022. This mod is most known for being the parent of the mod that inspired Crusty Windows, Windows Mac OS XP. There is a sequel to this mod which released a year later, named Windows Extreme Se7en 2010.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO, whose purpose is to style the OS with a Windows Vista theme and branding, like many others before it. It is unattended and preactivated.

This bootleg is not known for being very stable, and its sequel is no better, in fact, it's worse in many ways.

The ISO was made using nLite 1.4.1 on Windows Vista SP1.
