No idea if this will work, but maybe worth a try: write a first stage
bootloader that is able to load grub, name that first stage bootloader
NTOSKRNL.EXE and put it in \conoppix\system32, create an empty system
registry hive in \conoppix\system32\config\system and create an entry in
boot.ini

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\conoppix="conoppix"

Note that there is no size constraint on this first stage bootloader.
