Hardware Abstraction Layer
The HAL makes it possible for the x86 ReactOS kernel and HAL to run on different x86 motherboards. The HAL abstracts motherboard specific code from the kernel, so that different motherboards do not require changes in the kernel. Examples for different hardware designs are the standard PC, the Japanese NEC PC-98 or x86 SGI workstations.
