      Description

      When you select standard PC - multiprocessor during 1st stage install, ReactOS fails to start up for 2nd stage install. In trunk (24242), freeloader works, but the screen turns black as it boots and the attached debug output is produced. In ReactOS .3.1 (24242), freeloader fails to start and no debug output is produced.

      This is avoided if you select Standard PC (Uniprocessor) during the first stage install, even if two processors/cores are present.

      System: VMware Server 1.0.1 with 2 processors set to be used
      (note, VMware Server is free now)
      This was done on a dual-core real processor, but I believe you can test out dual processors in VMware even if you only have 1 processor/core.
