Windows XP Gamer Edition is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by Vitali of VXK Corporation. It released on May 5, 2006, and was added to the archive on January 2, 2022.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO, which aims at making a lite distribution. It succeeds, the ISO size being 118 MB and the installation being 1.12 GB. The bootleg also installs rather quickly too.

It is one of the early lite XP distributions, and possibly one of the first ever bootlegs to have the "Gamer Edition" title. It is also one of the earliest Russian Windows XP bootlegs.

A few registry tweaks have been made, notably some policies being set to hide unnecessary Start menu items.

It is unattended and preactivated. The bootleg was made using nLite 1.0 RC7, and the ISO was made with MKISOFS.
