Windows XP Fannan NewLook 6 is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by Ahmed Elfannan. It released on August 7, 2011, and was added to the archive on November 25, 2022.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO.

It comes with 300 themes and wallpapers, which is only available in the "New Look" version, which is part of the "OS look configuration" system in place in this bootleg. It is one of its kind, for sure. All other versions do not have these extras. There have been many new programs included, which can be installed through the new software installer exclusive to "New Look", which will appear on the first boot. It can be accessed later on, through the new autorun that this mod comes with.

It comes with a boot selector integrated. Through it, you can access Symantec Ghost 11.5.1 (cracked, registered to Imran I jaz). You can either boot straight into Ghost or perform two tasks with it: either backup a particular partition on a drive, or restore a disk image from a backup. You can also access the author's email information by simply clicking the author's Live email address.

On the first boot of the OS, you will be initially presented with a paragraph explaining how the system is designed to provide the best possible experience for the user and how much the author wants you to use it in a positive way and appreciate it out of the goodness of your heart.

Then, you will be presented with 3 OS configurations to choose from:

  1. "SP3", which is just the regular version of "XP Fannan" without any extra content (themes, wallpapers & programs),
  2. And the main focus: "New Look", which has all the extra content included.
  3. There is also the "Lite" version, which is a stripped down version of "New Look". Only 3 programs from the full version are included, along with AIMP 2.61 build 570 and FannFox lite (based on Mozilla Firefox 4.0.1). It has the default theme from "New Look".

Once you've picked an OS configuration, the configuration process will be started. Depending on what you've selected, it might not take very long. There is a finalization segment to this process, which involves finishing touches, such as installing Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Media Player 11 in the case of "New Look".

Afterwards, you will have to scroll through many pages of information which explain various parts of the OS, which seem to take longer than it really does. One of them being is, that you are told to hide the desktop icons in favor of using the dock at the top because it's allegedly easier to use. No seriously, that is actually something the bootleg encourages you to do. It will also tell you about the newly added "My Computer" toolbar link in the taskbar, where you are recommended to use it to access all of your documents and files... through the taskbar. That sounds equally as useful as solely accessing your icons through the dock. Anyway, it will also tell you about a user link in the Start menu, where you can access a small collection of programs, and various other things.

After all of that, you will be offered the option to install additional drivers (using Easy Driverpack) if you want to.

The ISO was made using nLite, and the boot selector used was Aero Studio 2007 2.01.
