I use the following script:

#!/bin/bash
sudo mount -o loop $1 /image


I call it mountiso. I created a mountpoint /image, to mount it. The syntax is mountiso <imagename>. The mounted iso will then be found in /image.

You can also do the same thing one-off. Open a terminal, create a mountpoint (similar to my /image point, syntax sudo mkdir /<mountpoint>, and type:

sudo mount -o loop <windows_iso> /<mountpoint>

Substitute the name of the Windows iso on the first one and the mountpoint you created on the second.
