VirtualBox Guest Harddrive Controllers on Windows XP

On VirtualBox 3.0.4, when using PIIX4 + SATA, these are the devices that appear on the Windows XP guest:
* Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller

* Intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller



Personally I was supposed to get the same native install to run inside a VM, but gave up. But here it stays for future reference. Also, in the unlikely case someone gets here before wandering the internets for it, here it is: Windows XP: In both VM and native (using Linux as host OS).


EDIT: I was able to do it after all :)
