What do you mean as the HAL Development Kit?
The development kit for writing device drivers?
If this is the case, you need the DDK that you can find in MSDN Professional CDs (full documentation included).

I would like to run NT4.0 on a specific piece if hardware (already developed - Intel based, but not PC-compatible). Therefore I'd need something like HAL Development Kit.
Thanks!

You want to make WinNT 4.0 run on a new (read it as not-supported-by-default) hardware platform?
Well it's an atipic task and I am not sure if you will be able to achieve it without direct support by Microsoft. I've never done anything similar, though, so you'd better reject my answer: *maybe* someone with more specific experience will be able to help you.
If you don't receive any answer, I'll repost mine - good luck.

The HAL Development Kit is a part of the NT DDK which is only available with MSDN Professional Level Subscription or better.

I have checked MSDN. HAL Development Kit is NOT a part of NT DDK.
