Dual Boot BBQLinux and Windows 10 using Windows Bootloader

I'm attempting to dual boot Windows 10(ntfs file-system and installed first) and BBQLinux(sdb1 formatted to ext4) on separate hard drives and retain the Windows Bootloader using EasyBCD in Windows. I installed BBQLinux on the second hard drive from the live disk choosing the option to install grub to sdb1. Afterwards I opened Windows and using EasyBCD I added the Linux boot option GRUB which created the file named "nst_linux.mbr" in C:/NST. I then edited that file to the following:

title BBQ
find --set-root /boot/vmlinuz-linux
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux ro root=/dev/sdb1

initrd /boot/initramfs-linux.img

When I attempt to boot into BBQLinux it just boots up to a black screen with a flashing cursor. I can put the BBQ disk in and choose the option to boot from already installed operating system, hit tab, choose BBQ and it boots fine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
