Ahh, so why is freeloader complaining about the missing multiboot header?

Well, I was just going to copy the updated files I just built over the
existing ones in the qemu image, but the disk was full, so I decided to
enlarge it. That required a reformat which led me to the problems. It
may very well work if I used the boot image to have reactos format the
virtual drive, but it should work with mtools as well. If it doesn't I
either need to figure out what I'm doing wrong or find the bug in the
code and fix it.
