Windows XP Sweet 5.1 is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by Kal. It released on September 28, 2008, and was added to the archive on June 18, 2023.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO which comes with DriverPacks BASE 8.05 integrated.

It comes with its own boot selector. Through it, you can choose to install the bootleg with SATA drivers or not. You can also access Memtest86+.

It comes with many new programs and updates, and the Vista Inspirat 2 theme thrown on top of it. It comes with its own partially-corrupted WPI (don't worry, all of the included programs are still intact)

It is unattended, and preactivated. The ISO was made using nLite, and the boot selector used was EasyBoot 5.1.
