Windows XP source code has been leaked online.

I know this thread is a few weeks old, but for anyone still running XP, there is such a thing as Microsoft EMET. Also available for Win7. Somehow I never saw all the "XP is unsafe, don't go online" scaremongers mention that tool.

I've been searching a lot for this, trying to understand how this is even possible: Intel Core i9-10900K Overclocking Record with Liquid Helium
Here it is:
Backported Drivers ACPI 2.0+ - Patched drivers to workaround STOP 0xA5 errors related to new ACPI standards
WinXPPAE v2 - Patches kernel and hal files to enable PAE (Physical Address Extension)
USB3/XHCI (generic) driver by MOV AX, 0xDEAD - Backported from Windows 8, requires the Kernel Mode Driver Framework 1.11 to be installed first. Includes UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) support. Multilingual INF file.
This allows to use more than 4GB RAM, modern CPUs including Ryzen and USB3 on Windows XP.
There exists a "Optional Patch Integrator script" that helps to include this Drivers to your own XP.iso
Thanks for this, I am hoping to build a highend overkill dual boot XP system. So you have already made my checklist to reference.
I know the EVGA Z390 Kingpin is XP friendly for the overclockers to set records. Also some ASUS boards can do it, especially the top ROG board as in the video.
No one has succeded getting XP with ACPI working on a X299 system yet sadly, going to give it a shot!
Hi, you can install XP on any intel system with ACPI patches. There are text drivers you can streamline into your image and then boot with USB.
There doesn't' seem to be an equivalent thing for AMD boards yet, although I believe AMD support legacy IDE mode for longer than intel did, which also works albeit at some cost to performance.
Yes, there is a script, that include these acpi.sys in your XP iso

Either on win-raid or mydigitallife there is talk of using the leaked source to fix acpi.sys so expect those types of links to be deleted here.
It looks like it is going to get difficult to draw the line between legitimate, cleanly reverse engineered patches and those tainted by the use of ill-begotten (leaked) source code/knowledge .
I mean, if someone new, along the lines of rloew, came along today and started providing new patches for older OSes, how would we legitimately know whether they are above board (not benefiting from leaks) or not ?
I am no legal expert, though I can't imagine how this mess can be handled safely other than by disallowing discussion of or links to patches than cannot be conclusively proven to predate the leaks .
