Windows Black Heart is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by Ahmed Hamdy. It released in February 14th, 2008.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO, which styles the OS with some hearts (hence the name), and with a Windows Vista theme. This bootleg comes with a Windows Vista looking theme and software. It has had a boot selector integrated into it, which lets you access various system utilities such as Partition Magic 8.0, Norton Ghost 2003, and others. It is unattended and preactivated.
