If he wants to boot a Windows iso over HTTP (before ISO emulation is implemented in WinVBlock),
he can use gPXE to download the iso via HTTP and use grub.exe of grub4dos for mapping
the initrd to a virtual CD drive.
You need the Firadisk driver inside the iso, to let Windows find the iso mapped by grub4dos.
APPEND --config-file="map (rd) (hd32); map --hook; root (hd32); chainloader (hd32)"
Or (it can be that (rd) needs to be changed to (rd)+1 according to the grub4dos documentation):
APPEND --config-file="map (rd)+1 (hd32); map --hook; root (hd32); chainloader (hd32)"
