I've investigate a little bit in the registry problem. Freeldr imports
the binary hives. During importing the system hive, it fails at
A key or subkey cell has a wrong identifier. Freeldr stops at this point
and imports the next hive. Later, freeldr does search for
\Registry\Machine\SYSTEM\Select. This key isn't loaded, because it is
located after the wrong cell. Freeldr isn't able to create the correct
link for \Registry\Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet. I will check, if
r19068 does fix the problem.
