    There is plenty of pro version for Dell, but I need the home edition.

    Thx Tito, I've downloaded the DELL_XP_HOME_SP3_20080911.DELTA file but what now then? There is lots of posts, no clear guide how to use the delta file. Could you give me an idea how to use it. It has to be probably mixed some how with the unbranded version of XP.

    I'm the one who originally made the delta file you have.

    Do you have a unbranded Windows XP SP3 ISO of some sort? Has to be a genuine one, then I can make you a delta file to make the Dell you are after.

    Code:
    GRTMHFPP_EN
    GRTMHOEM_EN
    GRTMPFPP_EN
    GRTMPOEM_EN
    GRTMPVOL_EN

    I can download unbranded Windows XP Home SP3 ISO, but I just don't know how this delta file works, how to use it.

    Give me the sha1 sum of the unbranded one you have and post it

    Then I'll explain the delta to you.

    Yes, I get that the OP is looking for Dell XP Home Edition, and yes, I see them via torrents. Posting torrent links is not allowed, otherwise I would post them. Dell Home Edition is there. Don't understand how OP can see only Pro Edition.

    Just double checked to make sure I wasn't confused. Google "dell xp home torrent" returns plenty.

    Torrents are allowed, all over the place.

    I'm just downloading the file. According to the info it's:
    Release File:
    WinHome-x86-en-US-Feb2014.iso
    Size: 791MB
    CRC32: 695E8D55
    MD5: 4D5778F4852276FE15F4228538F14266
    SHA-1: 29D7E01C30E077BCE7412B5F3AE9AB5BD0C006DD

    EDIT:
    I've got the same hashes from my iso file, which is already downloaded.

    Really? Okay, great. (A little while ago someone was looking for Windows 8.1 w/WMC. I posted a response with one of murphy's 20-in-1 torrents and it was taken down. Hope my confusion is understandable. Perhaps because it isn't an untouched ISO it wasn't permitted?)

    I've each one from your list but the polish version. I'll find the english one anyway, I need few more minutes.

    EDIT:
    Ok, I've downloaded en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-92413.iso from other source

    I've also downloaded GRTMPFPP_EN.ISO but it's probably fake, wrong hashes

    It looks like the en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-92413.iso is the good one, with the correct hash. So much hassle to reinstall OS on my old, original Dell PC with genuine COA. It's probably easier to use a pirate OS, less hassle, less time wasted. Thanks for your time Oz anyway, what's the next step to get that ISO Dell branded?

    There is a Windows 2000 thread around which has a bit of info about delta files, it's the one which started this whole delta stuff on MDL.

    Commands for delta coding is kind of basic.

    The one you just got was coded/ decoded this way:

    Code:
    xdelta3.0z.x86-32.exe encode -vs en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-92413.iso XP_HOME_SP3.iso GRTMHFPP_EN_to_XP_HOME_SP3
    
    Code:
    xdelta3.0z.x86-32.exe decode -vs en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-92413.iso GRTMHFPP_EN_to_XP_HOME_SP3

    Correct Modified ISO files are not permitted on MDL all the information and software is available to make your own up to date or AIO ISO files.
    We do not need people coming on to MDL looking for modified ISO's and even murphy78 knows that so even he does not advertise his ISO files on MDL.
    As for torrents same again only unmodified ISO files e.c.t are allowed and normally those are links is the various repositories on the forum.
