Windows XP DeLuXe 2010 v2 (also known as Windows DeLuXe Edition 2010 2.0) is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by Mursid Baran. It released on June 27, 2010 (the README file on the CD root says July 2010), and was added to the archive on August 4, 2022.

Description

The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO, with DriverPack version 10.05.29, Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack (QFE) version 1.3.2 20100615 and OnePiece IE8 and WMP Update Pack 2.1.0.

It comes with a boot selector integrated. Through it, you can access Hiren's BootCD/LiveCD 10.6, Ultimate Boot CD 5.0.2, Acronis True Image 2010, Norton Ghost 11.5, Active@ Password Changer 3.0 build 0420 (cracked, registered to Horst Tacke) and Partition Magic Pro 8.05.

It comes with many visual styles and wallpapers. It comes with a new icon, cursor and sound set. It comes with many hotfixes integrated, and registry tweaks. It comes with its own autorun, through which you can access a post software installer by the name of Mars Installer 1.4, and a video preview of the OS (both exist on the CD and as a YouTube link).

On the first boot, a Command Prompt window will open, which will install the DeLuXe 2010 tools (which is full of customization utilities), then the OS will reboot after.

It is unattended and preactivated. The bootleg was made using nLite, the boot selector used was EasyBoot and the autorun was made with Advanced CD Launcher.
