Using current upstream you should not need --modules=part_msdos using
partitioned loop. It should detect partition itself.

Not sure I understand the question. If you are in GRUB normal mode,
everything worked correctly. To boot automatically you need to create
grub.cfg in /boot/grub (or /boot/grub2 depending on your distribution)
that contains commands to actually boot operating system. grub-mkconfig
is one way to generate such file with menu entries for current kernels
in /boot.
