Or maybe this makes it more clear: With wubi (which uses grub4dos) for
example this only works, because the ubuntu installer and lateron the
installed system provide additional software that enables the system
to do so. (lupin/caspar) This only works if specifically supported by
some iso, it will not work to boot isos in general.
