    I've never done it myself, but you might have some look by googling for "grub boot loop file" or something like that. A random pick from that result:

    ISO boot from FAT/NTFS/USB (GRUB.exe, grldr from boot.ini) - Knoppix.net

    As said, I didn't do it myself. So I don't know if it will work.
