You can use a backup of the Windows System State, this should encompase all of the system settings for you to mirror over to a new build.

The one problem with MS is that you can't create a template like an XML this would be a great feature but currently this is not present. You can create images or backups of the system then image the server.

You can try the System State restore but most likely not all of your settings would apply.

So there is no way to scan a new server and have all the setting export to a file so you could create an unattended file?

You can do an unattend install but you would still needed to configure the system.

Imaging Software is what you want

Not of a physical machine, that I am aware of.

However, you wanted to step up and look into virtual environments. You could create a default virtual image that you can use as a base for further server builds.
