Obviously hd0 is the internal disk. So hd1 must be the USB drive.

Indeed, hd0 has too many partitions to be the unchanged ISO.
The ISO has 2 and no "protective" MBR partition of type 0xee, which would
indicate GPT.

But hd1 has too few partitions. I'd expect GRUB2 to ignore the GPT of the ISO
and maybe the MBR partition 1 of type 0x00. But MBR partition 2 with
type 0xef should show up.

I think this is because the GRUB core image installed on a drive includes only whatever modules are needed to access and read the location of /boot/grub. So the GRUB core image installed on a GPT drive includes only the part_gpt module and cannot read MSDOS partition tables until it switches to normal mode and loads the part_msdos module.
