Haiku Booting on a MacBook Info...(gets stuck)

Ok, this is a little confusing.
I have a core 2 duo macbook.
Using Vmware Fusion, I've enabled a physical bootcamp partition, and used Zeta to mount the disk, format it, install Haiku, and make it bootable.
Macbooks don't have a PS/2 controller, so I can't select any safe mode settings or type anything.
'ReactOS development builds (trunk) have run fine now for two days on Intel Mac (with Bootcamp installed) computers. Intel Mac's consist of standard hardware but there are some differences which had made it impossible to run ReactOS before. Intel Mac's don't have PS/2 keyboard controllers. GRUB as well as Darwin's BIOS loader had similar problems sometime ago, good that it has been fixed in ReactOS too. Intel Mac's BIOS has a "serial port" bug, it reports that COM1 exist, but no one is there physically. Two other BIOS bug are related to reading CD/DVD drives. ReactOS does support HID-compliant devices, especially USB keyboard and mouse which is relevant for Intel Mac. We want to thank Michael Steil for making this possible. Stay tuned for ReactOS 0.3.1 which will incorporate these improvements and will be released in late december 2006.'
I was wondering if Haiku writes a log by default, that way I could mount the physical disk Haiku is installed on and read it under Zeta...
What I have done, is booted the physical drive that Haiku is installed on through Vmware Fusion in Mac OS X. I added a serial port, and got the log. Vmware crashes though (see screenshot), and here's the log: http://rafb.net/p/jFLYHU40.html
When I boot the physical partition normally (no emulator), the system shows the Haiku boot screen but will stay there forever.
Anyways, hope this info is useful.
