Bootleg quirks

  • There are several programs listed in the NFO that is included in the WPI's programs, but not available in the WPI listing.
  • UXTheme is not patched by default, despite this bootleg having unsigned themes.
  • All the sound is disabled by default in Big Money.

CD contents and other info

  • Since the CD's bootstrapper does not use EasyBoot's one, all of the bootable utilities on the CD are completely inaccessible, unless you edit the ISO to have it.
  • There is an unused boot image for CHNTPW 0.99.3 (named "nthack.ima") in the cdboot directory, where the EasyBoot data is stored.
  • There is a boot image file visible on the CD root, named "Arnes Boot Record.img".
  • There is a NFO file on the CD root, named "xpsp2ee.nfo", which documents everything bundled with the bootleg.

WINNT.SIF metadata

  • The registered owner and organization is set to "MS-USER" and "Microsoft Corporation" respectively.
