* Includes all official and some unofficial Windows XP Service Pack 3 Updates till 14.2.2012.
* Over 200 MB integrated drivers for SATA/ACHI, LAN, WLAN and Monitors.
* A lot of Windows XP settings have been already set and will be also set for new created Windows XP accounts.
* Includes a Codec Pack that will decode and encode almost every Audio and Video format.
* Booting and Running a little bit faster then normally because some worthless Windows XP files and Programs are removed and all the Windows XP Updates are slipstreamed.
* After Windows XP has been installed you can choose if you the Preconfigured Windows XP Settings and the Extra Programs should be implemented, if nothing was chosen in 60 seconds then the option Yes will be automatically selected.
* This Windows XP is not for Upgrading you must make a clean installation on a formatted Hard disk drive or Partition.
* It is also possible to add Extra Programs and Custom Settings by editing the files in the directory "(source)\OEM\RunOnce" and the file "WINNT.SIF" in the directory "(source)\I386". To do this you need to use a ISO Editor and a text editor to open this files.
* If you install this Windows XP on several computers and want a full automated installation then you need use an ISO Editor and replace the file "WINNT.SIF" in the "(source)\OEM" folder with the one in the "(source)\I386" folder. When you now Boot from this Disc then the main Hard disk drive will be formatted and a new partition will be create and Windows XP will be automatically installed on this partition. Note if you are replacing this "WINNT.SIF" file then you will loss the Recovery Console and the Repair Option that you could run from the Windows XP Disc.
* If the Windows XP installation hangs or if you get a Blue Screen Error during the Windows XP installation then this is probably due to a SATA driver problem. To fix this problem you should do the steps under "Infos on how to Remove the included Drivers and include your own Drivers". If you have a Blue Screen Error during the Windows XP installation then you could use a workaround for this by going into your BIOS and then by turn off the option SATA/ACHI or by changing the SATA Mode option to IDE. This should normally fix the Blue Screen Error, But with this workaround you will loss around 2 to 10 percent of your Hard disk speed.

This Windows XP programs are removed because they are outdated or they have been replaced by Microsoft with a better version, for example the free Microsoft Outlook Express that has been replaced years ago with the free Windows Live Mail program.
* If you want to change the Windows XP CD-Key after the Windows XP installation then you use the Tool "Keyfinder (Key Changer) v1.51.exe" that you find in the "(source)\OEM\INFOS" folder on the Burned Optical Disc and in the ISO file. You can also change the Windows XP Owner and Company with this Tool.
* If you get a malware warning about the files "Keyfinder (Key Changer) v1.51.exe" and "Windows Genuine Advantage Crack for v1.9.0042.0.exe", this is normal because almost all Anti-Virus Programs are detecting Key Changers and Cracks as malware.
