Windows MA KI High Definition is the sequel to Windows MA KI made by the same author, which released 2 months after the original. It was added to the archive on January 30, 2024.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO, with DriverPacks version 12.09, Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack version 20130611 and OnePiece IE8 Update Pack 4.3.0 integrated.

It comes with more themes and wallpapers than its predecessor, the wallpapers being in HD, which explains the name "MA KI High Definition". It comes with registry tweaks.

A batch script that sets the C: drive label to "HIGH DEFINITION" and a cleanup script will now run every startup.

It is unattended and preactivated. The bootleg was made using nLite and Windows Unattended CD Creator, and the autorun was made with AutoPlay Media Studio

Changes from Windows MA KI

Minor changes

  • The setup pre-loader text's foreground and background color is set to white on light blue.
  • The text-mode setup OS text is first set to "MA KI", then "MA KI High Definition". The copying text is also changed as well.
  • Fast Explorer has been integrated into the system, which now provides extra menu items for the desktop context menu. There, you can access various websites and cycle through wallpapers. There are two different SFXs that implement the latter for some reason.
  • The Run dialog has been updated with new graphics
  • OEM branding is included, along with Support Information.

Changes in pre-desktop procedures

  • The setup graphics are almost entirely different from its predecessor. The humorous "NEW LOOOOOOOK WINDOWS" text is no longer present, sadly.
  • New boot graphics
  • The pre-OOBE segment is skipped.
  • New login graphics

Bootleg quirks

  • The "( MA KI Plex Style )" theme doesn't work because it points to "Plex Style.msstyles", while the actual filename is "Plex Style (Media Center Edition).msstyles". Also, the icon paths point to the drive letter D, which corresponded to the theme author's physical disk with that letter, despite the theme being extracted to the C drive. This was never corrected by the author of this mod.
  • This bootleg borrows quite a few assets from Windows Speed Max.
  • This bootleg has code to detect a WIHU on the CD, even though this bootleg doesn't have one.
  • UberIcon and RocketDock are supposed to be present as nLite addons. What would have been their corresponding INF files, are specified in SYSOC.INF. But those files do not exist, they were included as setup hotfixes instead.
  • The C: root now has its own custom icon. There is a duplicate of the drive icon. Its adjacent thumbnail cache file that gets dropped has deleted images for Windows Speed Max.
  • The Start menu uses the Classic style by default.

CD contents and other info

  • There is an updated version of the previous cover from the first MA KI. The most noticeable difference is that it is in gray, instead of blue.
  • The CD has its own custom icon.

WINNT.SIF metadata

  • System Restore is disabled by default.
  • The full name is set to "MA KI".
  • The computer name is set to "MAKI-PC".
  • The workgroup name is set to "LAN".
  • In GuiRunOnce, there is an entry for a script known as "maki.cmd" which will be executed.
