A well-known Taylor problem in the theory of forced magnetic reconnection is investigated in the framework of the Hall-Magnetohydrodynamics. In the first part of the paper, we deal with the linear theory of the Hall-mediated forced reconnection. Then, in the second part, these results are used for demonstrating how the secondary tearing (plasmoid) instability can develop in the course of this process.
