It helps to give my problem some context. I want to install some software on a laptop that doesn't have a CD drive. The installation media composes of 4 CDs installed in series.
What I did was created 4 iso images from the real media and transferred them to the laptop I want to install it on. Windows 10 File Explorer automatically mounted the first disk image when I opened the iso file. I started the setup program and waited for the prompt to enter the next disk in the drive. I then ejected(unmounted the image) using file explorer and opened the next iso. Problem appears to be that windows opened the next image using a different mount point or identifier, because when i return to the running installation software, it still believes the second installation cd to be unavailable. Note that the drive letter in use was the same, because I unmounted the previous iso first. File explorer of course shows the media mounted under a different drive id of style [drive letter - random numbers].
So, I'd like to know if there is a way to mount an iso disk image to a specific drive ID / mount point that can be remounted to another image such that it appear as literally the same drive?
