Windows XP Bunny X V.3 is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition created by Mr. Bunny X, released on February 24, 2009, and added to the archive on April 12, 2023.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO, with DriverPacks BASE 8.12.4 integrated. It comes with a boot selector, where you can choose to install the OS or boot from the hard disk. It's mostly intended to make the OS look like Vista. The bootleg doesn't have many changes, it adds some software and updates like .NET Framework, but it does have programs on the CD you can install, which is through the new autorun. But that's about it really.

The ISO was made using nLite, the boot selector used was EasyBoot v5.1, and the autorun was made with StartCD 1.2.
