I cannot boot archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso that was put into ntfs

I cannot boot archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso that was put into ntfs by grub2.
I prefer to put archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso into NTFS partion using grub2 to boot into install guide. I found that archlinux-2020.08.01-x86_64.iso can be success but archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso can not because initramfs can not spicified NTFS。
/etc/etc/grub.d/40_custom
menuentry '[loopback]archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso' {
        insmod ntfs
        insmod progress
       ##only rect the 2021.11.01 to equel yours
        set isofile='/boot/iso/archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso'
        search --no-floppy -f --set=root $isofile
        probe -u $root --set=abc
        set pqr="/dev/disk/by-uuid/$abc"       
    echo loop iso root in ($root)$isofile
    echo loading loop device...
    loopback loop ($root)$isofile
    echo loading vmlinuz...
    linux (loop)/arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz-linux img_dev=$pqr img_loop=$isofile earlymodules=loop
    echo loading memdisk...
    initrd (loop)/arch/boot/intel-ucode.img (loop)/arch/boot/amd-ucode.img (loop)/arch/boot/x86_64/initramfs-linux.img
    echo OK!!! Please wait a while...
}

Why can not  initramfs of archlinux-2021.11.01-x86_64.iso  specified NTFS while that of archlinux-2020.08.01-x86_64.iso can??

Because NTFS module was removed from kernel few months back. I don't remember when but you would find details by googling.

Googling does not work IN MY COUNTRY. Is it possible NTFS module will be added back?

Possible option are to recompile kernel.

Option that I chose was to create 2GB FAT partition. And put Arch ISO in that.

The chances of the ntfs module being added back are *exremely* slim. 5.15 includes the new ntfs3  module.
