How far did it go, such as whether you saw the twirling bar, the DragonFly
menu, the copyright notice, or so on. If you can get to the boot menu,
please try booting with ACPI disabled to see if it changes anything.
I know it's hard because our boot loader can't properly initialize
the keyboard (and I see it on other OSes, too). You'll have to try
rebooting until the keyboard works.
It boots fine on MacBook Pro(core 2 duo) here, FYI. It may or may not
have something to do with the firmware version. Updating the firmware
on a Mac is a scary operation, though.
