It is in the correct format. Non-EFI boots start in real mode.

It is in the right format especially when you look at the final product.

Depends. What Windows version across what media? chain.c32 can boot a
local hard drive. MEMDISK can boot some ISOs, specifically most PE and
PE-like systems. iPXE's wimboot is probably the best choice for network
booting if you have an appropriate file.
