mkerscue makes *full* grub available in ISO, so everything that it
needs at boot time is autoloaded from image. Image itself only needs
just enough to access ISO after initial boot.

It would be interesting to find out what is missing in your case. You
could start with booting rescue into CLI, issuing the same "linux" and
"initrd" commands and comparing the list of modules (lsmod). Use "set
pager=1" as module list is likely longer than normal screen.
