I can't boot ReactOS with MP HAL (but compiled with SMP=0) - it hangs  
in VMWare 4.5 on the "Loading disk.sys". I remember some time ago it  
hun on "Loading buslogic.sys" but I just deleted it.

Installation of WinXP in the same virtual machine goes with  
installing APIC HAL.

I tried investigating these problems, because interrupts are not  
being delivered to the uhci driver, in VM it's placed either on IRQ 9  
if normal HAL is used, and on 0x19 if APIC mode is used.
I'm currently out of ideas why it doesn't work.
