Windows XP SP2 Bonzao Matrix is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by Rafao. It released on June 14, 2005, and was added to the archive on November 15, 2023.

Description

The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO. It comes with a boot selector. Through it, you can boot a Windows 98 startup disk with Partition Magic 8.0 and Drive Image 2002 (both by PowerQuest), and Memtest86 3.2. It comes with some wallpapers and programs. It comes with registry tweaks. It is preactivated.

The ISO was made using nLite, and the boot selector used was EasyBoot 5.0.

Notes

Bootleg quirks

  • 17 unused wallpapers can be found in the default theme's Thumbs.db. The wallpapers all can be found elsewhere - the Thumbs.db file is just a copy of the same file also found in the folder where the wallpapers are. 3 unused wallpapers can be found there.

CD contents and other info

  • The ISO has been clearly tampered with:
    • Both DEFAULT.jpg and Matrix02.bmp has a file date of October 10, 2012.
    • Avast! Antivirus, Windows Media Player 10, Nero 6.6.0.12 in Spanish and Microsoft Office XP are supposed to come with the ISO, but it has been overwritten with different programs instead. AVG Anti-Virus 2012 build 2197a5126 takes Avast! Antivirus's place, Microsoft Office 2007 (just the bootstrapper on its own, no less) takes Microsoft Office XP's place, and Nero and Windows Media Player just straight up don't exist at all. A new program (PowerISO) is added, but is never used because it's not in RunOnceEx.cmd.
  • There is a serial number listed on the CD root as SERIAL.txt.
  • There is an empty text file on the CD root called CD.txt.
  • There is an MP3 file on the CD root labelled NFSU - Fuel - Quarter.mp3.

WINNT.SIF metadata

  • The full name and organization is set to "COMPUTADOR" and "MICROSOFT" respectively.
  • The workgroup name is set to "GRUPO".
