Confused HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\BCD00000000 ? What is it?

I see a registry key I don't recognize at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, it's value is BCD00000000.
There are a few folders underneath but they don't seem to contain anything usefull

It appears that you received an answer in this thread on Vistax64.com, which references the Symantec PDF on Windows Vista Kernel-Mode Security. Was there any additional information you needed?

 No,thank you wery much.
I call Microsoft support and they tells me that registry key is legitimate and is used for booting Vista.
What can I say? It's temporary blindnes because I always use expanded regedit with HKLM under software branch and I did'n notice that key and I found myself in "confused" situation.
