Too bad that accessing an iso on a usb key is nothing like an actual cd
or dvd and the sytem you boot must have support for the fact you put the
iso on the usb key rather than as a real disc.  Nothing the boot loader
can do to change that.

If it was really that simple, someone would already have made such a
boot loader for use on usb keys.  The reason it doesn't exist yet is
that it can't exist.
