Today I found the source of the problem.

When I deactivate the second CPU core in the BIOS of the notebook, then I can 
start and use Haiku Alpha 2.

By the way, I have the same problem with the newest nightly build.

Please note that I tried all options in the safe mode and I deactivated the 
power management, the LAN, the wireless functions and almost anything that I 
could find in the BIOS configuration and the Haiku safe boot menu.
Nothing helped.

Only when I deactivate the second CPU core, then Haiku Alpha 2 runs, even when 
all the other features are activated.

Why is this so?

The Haiku Alpha 1 version runs wonderful on this notebook, even with both CPU 

What was changes between Alpha 1 and Alpha 2 that could cause such a problem?

Best wishes,
