XTremeCD v5.9.5 is a Windows XP SP3 based distribution created as part of the XTremeCD series, by XTreme.ws. It released on April 30, 2009, and was added to the archive on May 4, 2023.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO, with many SATA-RAID drivers and DriverPacks integrated. It styles the OS with a cyan Windows Vista theme, and it adds many programs and themes, wallpapers and updates, among many other things. The OS automatically applies OEM branding depending on what processor you are using.

It has had a boot selector integrated into it, from there you can access several useful utilities.

You can choose to make the installation unattended through the boot selector. The OS is preactivated by proxy, due to the unattended installation automatically setting a key.

The ISO was made using nLite, the autorun was made with Advanced CD Launcher v1.2 by Boa Software, and the boot selector used was Bootable CD Wizard v2.0a1.
