Building new Windows XP Guest

Currently I have the need to build a new Windows XP Guest in VirtualBox.  So I figure that I want the latest and greatest so that I wont have to keep upgrading it. 

On the OS side, I want it to be pre-installed with SP3, and possibly some or all of the patches

On the Virtual Hardware side I want for the Hard drive to be SATA, not IDE, and for the bridge to be ICH9, not PXII3.

My ultimate goal is for it to be point and shoot, no installing as IDE / PXII3 and convert, but to choose SATA / ICH9 straight from the start.  Also want to do it without any other tools like nlite.  Starting work today, lets see where this gets us
