The ISO images that you are giving are installer images, they are not live images. The findiso feature is specific to live images. It's thus expected that it doesn't work.

Please check attached grub config file, menu: "Live system (fail-safe mode)", and below...
Do you see everywhere findiso=${iso_path} kernel parameter?
