Please see the ticket #1599 for relevant info.
I believe there's an EHCI error in Haiku, which makes it impossible to boot Haiku on Apple hardware (see the screenshot Z.jpg).
I cannot get a backtrace because the keyboard doesn't work on both Apple machines I've tested (MacPro, and MacBook). It is the exact same EHCI error btw.
From the ReactOS project:
'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.'
