    It'll only go when the basic devices don't depend on being enumerated in the registry. That's why I go on about C: drives. look how simply 'nix does it - everything's a file - not entries in a non-relational, obscurely structured database with unintelligible codes nested 20 deep.

    I don't have a Manage tab on File Explorer/Windows Explorer. Does this require hardware virtualization to work? I don't have it since this is a Intel P4.

    Hello Rich,

    Your association for .iso files may not be set to default. If you like, the .iso option in the tutorial below will restore the default associations for it, and hopefully you'll have the Manage tab when you select an .iso file afterwards.

    Thanks Shawn, that was it. The default was set to IsoBuster. Restored default and it works a treat. I like it!

    Using the command prompt in Windows 8.1 update, how do I mount and unmount an ISO image?

    Thanks

    Hello Balubeto,

    You could mount an ISO or IMG file using the command below in PowerShell.

    Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath "Full path of ISO file"



    Mount-DiskImage


    To unmount the ISO or IMG file, you could use the command below in an elevated command prompt. It would be the same as ejecting the drive.

    mountvol DriveLetter: /d


    I've updated the tutorial to add this to help.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    It is possible to do it even with a command not Powershell?

    Thanks

    You could type powershell in a command prompt first, press Enter, then use the command below in the command prompt. It won't work in one line though.
