Windows Ramez XP v1.5 (named after the author) is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by Ramez Leeno. It released on January 2, 2010 and was added to the archive on December 13, 2021.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO with drivers integrated, along with a boot selector. It focuses on theming the OS to Windows Vista/7. It adds many new programs. It comes with a WPI.

The ISO was made using nLite 1.3, and the boot selector used was Aero Loader.

  • There is CUE data at the end of the ISO file, presumably due to a botched ripping job. To fix the problem, remove the CUE data at the end of the file. (7-Zip will tell you about this when you open the ISO with it.)

  • A new boot screen is applied during setup.
  • The Winamp playlist has an entry that leads to a nonexistent path.
  • The setup's "Press any key to boot from CD" text has been altered slightly.
