I really don't know how to boot a windows iso from grub2, and I don't 
even know if that is possible. Offhand, I would think that's not 
possible, but if others here can confirm or know otherwise, please chip in.

But I do sometimes (rarely, nowadays) boot up Ubuntu's livecd iso and 
others. If you need a sample grub2 menuentry, I can provide these, but 

So sorry, I cannot be of further assistance on this.

Oh boy, Amichai, you guys have really made me much aware of my 
limitations, even as a grub2 advocate.  :)
