With virtualbox the files on windows host are kinda spaced. I did wish to see some support for usb harddrives.

Qemu can do this also. You put all files inside program directory and you can use relative paths.

Also a non installer version would be nice (just unzip). If some changes on windows are required I would appreciate an install/uninstall button inside the portable gui.

I think making VBox portable is impossible (due to kernel modules), and complex services.
