Can this be save on root of C:
or USB 8 or 16gb?
The big question is the ISO can that be on the root of Windows Hard Drive?
I take it Grub2Win can be run in Windows?
And will it setup when I install it for me?

Two things to notice:
1. When you boot now you will see a Windows boot menu. Booting Windows from the hard drive will be the top option on the menu and it will boot your Windows system just like before. Grub2Win will be the second option. If you're curious select it and see what it does.
2. After you have booted Windows start Grub2Win, either by an icon on the desktop or by clicking on the grub2win.exe in C:\grub2. Notice near the top of the Grub2Win window on the left 3 buttons. If you ever decide to remove Grub2Win from your system use these buttons to do it. They will insure your Windows boot manager gets restored to the way it was before you installed Grub2Win. Simply deleting the c:\grub2 folder is not how to remove Grub2Win from your system.
So, what is the name and location of your Porteus ISO and Porteus folders?

set kernelpath='/** kernel path **' # Example '/vmlinuz'
set initrdpath='/** initrd path **' # Example '/initrd.img'
set bootparms='** your linux bootparms **'
set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=C:/porteus322/Modules'
This should give you a boot menu when you reboot. And if you choose the Grub2Win option when you boot you should see an entry for Porteus, which if selected should boot. It may not boot the way you want but it should boot.
