You need to specify the full path to the .ISO file.


Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath 'F:\ISOs\System\Win7PE2.iso' -Verbose

From Microsoft's Mount-DiskImage TechNet entry, and from Get-Help Mount-DiskImage within PowerShell:

This cmdlet requires the full path of the VHD or ISO file.

  • Oh my, I don't know why I did not notice this. Thank you very much!

    Thanks! What an incredibly strange restriction and stupid error message, though. Mar 8 '18 at 22:39

In case you'd like to use it in a script or you are too lazy to type the full path (as I am), you can go with:

Mount-DiskImage ((Get-Item -Path ".\" -Verbose).FullName+"\ISONAME.iso")
  • I don't see the point of this script: why would you use Get-Item and then, later on, specify the ISO's name by yourself? Something along $a = @(Get-ChildItem -Include *.iso) | Select-Item -ExpandProperties FullName; Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath $a[0] -Verbose would seem much more elaborate to me.

My option:

$mountResult = Mount-DiskImage (Get-Item $iso).VersionInfo.FileName -PassThru -ErrorAction Stop

where $iso contains relative or absolute path
