Windows XP 75MB Edition is a bootleg build of Windows XP SP2, which was created by Daniel M. Bulow. It released on August 31, 2008 and added to the archive on December 9, 2021.


As the name suggests, this bootleg is an attempt to get a slim version of Windows XP down to 75 MB, which is rather impressive for a SP2 build. As a result, practically everything has been removed, leaving only the essentials for running the OS. It is unattended and preactivated.

By default, the system creates and logs into a user named "Doni".

The bootleg was made using nLite 1.4.8.

Changes from Windows XP SP2

Changes in pre-desktop procedures

  • The setup will now start in 1024x768 resolution, in 32-bit color and at 60 Hz.

Look and feel

  • All themes and wallpapers have been removed.
  • All programs aside from Explorer, Command Prompt, Notepad, and Regedit have been removed.


Bootleg quirks

  • Unlike most XP CDs, this version does not ask you to press a key to boot from CD, so make sure your boot order is set to boot from the hard drive first.

WINNT.SIF metadata
