1. When I switch the falcon on, I need to hit reset, sometimes 2 or more times to get the system booting. Is this normal?
Did this not occur before the rewiring and NVRAM replacement?
Try to put some pressure on the NVRAM chip and see if it helps. If it does not have good contact with the motherboard the Falcon will not boot. If it helps, its probably bad soldering joints or just a bad socket if you installed a socket there.
I used to have some problems with resets on one of my Falcons, but after replacing all the electrolytic capacitors on the motherboard, and the PSU with a picoPSU, all problems I experienced are gone.

I've got the Nemesis installed in one of my Falcons and I've also developed the Nemesis Indicator software that can be used to control it (get it from nb.atari.org). The current mode of the Nemesis cannot be detected by accessing the hardware unless you measure the bus speed or similar. All Nemesis tools rely on the software that is actually changing the mode of the Nemesis to also update the NSPD cookie. If the cookie is not updated or the cookie is not installed, the Nemesis software will not show the correct mode. So, nothing wrong with the hardware, most likely just a software issue. If you use the original software that comes with the Nemesis, NEMESIS.PRG should be executed first, followed by for instance NEM_HI.PRG. After that, all Nemesis software should show the right mode. At least Nemesis Indicator will.

What's HRTC? High Resolution True Color mode?
