1. ## Mounting an iso locate on the network with Windows ADK

Hi

I installed Windows ADK 10 v1703 on Windows 10 Enterprise v1703.

In the "Deployment and Image Tool Environment" window running as Administrator, I wrote the following commands

Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools>net use z: "\\NASTS269PRO\Public\Download_pubblici" xxxxxx /user:"Balubeto_Balubeto"
Successful command execution.

Run it as a Virtual Machine then if your computer is able to handle it or just run it on the machine. You cannot mount a ISO from a NAS, since that is not how it works.

If I mount that iso using "File Explorer", I have no problem.

So, using the command line, how do I mount this iso?

Thanks

You can mount an iso from the command line using PowerShell, and powershell commands can be issued from a command prompt (or even a .bat file), albeit with some careful escaping of the quotes and % characters. See this thread on TechNet for an example. Further down is a way to do it just calling explorer.exe from the command line (but that method will open an explorer window if you use it).

So, how do I create the %WindowsISOPath% variable using the Command Prompt?

Thanks

8. SET WindowsISOPath=\\servername\share\folderpath\file.iso
(using your actual path, of course)

If I would create this variable, could I also avoid mapping the network unit? If so, how should I create this variable to make sure that it has the permissions to access the iso file?

10. You were given an answer at Mounting an iso locate on the network with Windows ADK

I would just mount it as a VM or do a drive swap with the ADK installed on that use that for whatever. You can also get a Refurb with a Intel Core 2 Duo or even a AMD CPU when Windows 8 came out and run it on that. I have two Intel Core 2 Duo's and a Intel Core 2 Quad Core that I use for various reasons. One of them has a Hot Swap bay for cases like this where I want to run two machines with different OS's on each one and switch between them with a KVM switch when I have to work directly on one or the other. It is how labs are setup on the cheap if you do not want what looks like a Small Business Office setup like I have.
