If QEMU worked but a real system did not, then the problem is with your system's BIOS.
The usual reason is that you are using a partition of >137GB and the BIOS can only access sectors on a USB drive that are before 137GB.
grubinst_new.exe should never be used by the script because grubinst.exe is present in the directory and will always be used (unless there is a problem with your Windows somewhere).
The code is (where GR=grubinst.exe)
%GR% -h 2> gr.txt
find "--silent-boot" gr.txt > nul
if not errorlevel 1 set SILENT=--silent-boot
if "%SILENT%"=="" set GR=grubinst_new.exe

so the find command should *always* be successful because the output from grubinst.exe included in the download will have the --silent text in the help output.
Please check you Windows PATH environment variable - maybe it is running the Cygwin version of FIND instead of the Windows version?
