Blue screen during install of Windows XP with slipstreamed SATA driver

I don't think this was ever fixed, yet the old ticket is closed: 2282 https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/2282
Attempt to install Windows XP Pro SP3 slip-streamed with Intel Storage Matrix version 126.96.36.1990 to 10.6.0.1002, results in blue screen of death at "device installation stage" of XP installation.
That is, XP uses driver to detect corresponding hard disk and copies installation files, but during device installation stage of XP, the user is confronted with BSOD. If the user attempts to resume installation after a cold boot, installation is successful. That error should never occur in the first place and seemingly was never fixed; tested virtualbox 4.1.4 and virtualbox 4.0.12, both fail.
Note, to reproduce this error, Vista must be selected as OS within virtualbox so that the default controller is Sata and not IDE. You must be thinking, "you selected vista of course it failed." I selected Vista to get the sata controller. I believe this should be fixed. What's more believable that every version of Intel Storage Matrix AHCI driver is plagued by BSOD therefore that Intel doesn't know how to write drivers or that VirtualBox is at fault?
