    Discovered source of problem with SMP system freeze under NT3.51/NT4 with UniATA. Uniata doesn't matter :) It just allow system to boot on newer hardware. Actual source of problem appeared to be i8042. Firstable, we discovered that in hangs on init. I've built debug version of i8042prt.sys from DDK and we can see strange execution stop on I/O port read attempt during keyboart init. Search for "i8042 SMP keyboard problem" gave reference to Linux bug report. Thus, problem is related to legacy USB keyboard emulation. Disabling this option in BIOS allows OS to start normally.

    Published beta UniATA v0.46d6

    • fixed CD/DVD detection problem on some SATA. Thahks to Rayer for finding exact version where support was broken.
    • fixed problem CSB5 and old ISA with i486, thanks to KtP for testing
    • reduced binary size

    And about difficulties:

    • can't overcome SATA PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-215D on nVidia MCP51 (10de:0266) for about half a year. The device can be detected, handles ATA commands, but doesn't respond to ATAPI packet command. More datails can be found at ReactOS BUG-9119
    • some SMP hangs on GUI init. Looks like it happens when GUI touchs CD/DVD.

    Fixed compatibility bug with non-RDTSC-capable CPUs (i386 and i486) in DbgPrint Dump v0.9a (thanks to KtP for bug-report).
