I saw it on the Internet Archive and it looks to be legit and I even downloaded it, its 1.5GBs compared to XP's normal 500 MBs size, I can't find any info online about it, do you guys have any idea?

Congratulations genius. lol.

It's probably just XP with a whole bunch of trash applications preinstalled, as usual.

I installed it, looks to actually not have any pre-installed crap, just got MyPal and VB guest additions.

Had to put my screenshot as a link since the editor was nagging about resolution 8-)
I would have posted the link but some moderator removed it or something.

The link was removed since it was not clear what this "unofficial" SP5 was, and had the potential to contain software that is less than 10 years old, and hence would be considered warez. A reason should have been provided, apologies.

Maybe it's SP3 but with all the XP updates ever released plus some bloatware and/or malware.
