Windows Light XP 2008 is a Windows XP SP2 distribution created as part of the Light XP series, by Captain Majid of Mz-Files. It released on March 7, 2008, and was added to the archive on December 9, 2021.

Description

The bootleg is a stripped down Windows XP SP2 ISO with RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack 2.2.1 and NR's Internet Explorer 7 English Addon Pack v1.0.9a (based on IE7 Installer 7.0.5730.13) integrated.

It comes with its own boot selector, which comes with several utilities, most of them being in DOS, and of course the actual bootleg itself.

It comes with many programs, games, themes, wallpapers and updates.

The ISO was made using nLite 1.4.1.

  • New Winver branding

Changes in pre-desktop procedures

  • New setup background
  • New boot screen, with a semi-transparent shadow added to the Windows XP text. The kernel filename is listed as "ntkrnlpa.exe" by default. This is due to Light XP's feature of allowing you to select different kernels.

Look and feel

  • New default theme, and wallpaper
  • 4 new themes included
  • 2 new screensavers included
  • New icon set
