  1. mount an ISO at boot?


    Since we can boot to Command Prompt in Windows 10 is it possible to mount an ISO directly from that? Assume I didn't burn the ISO or load it to USB first.
    In my case System File Checker is asking for a drive letter to use as a reference file system.

    :)

    Mount ISO image that persists or mount at start-up

    I think you may be misinterpreting my query - please read again.

    I mounted the ISO file using file explorer - it allocated the drive letter E:. I then changed it to U: using diskmgmt. The reason is that I have a family history program that needs a CD to be available when I use it, and Ive told it that the CD is in drive
    U:

    This works fine until I re-boot, so I then have to repeat the process.

    So, I need a way of either making the mount and drive letter persist after a restart (like network drives) or to mount and assign a drive letter at start-up.
