    Virtual hard disk can't be mounted ...


    Hello everybody,
    recently I've installed Windows 8,1 Pro version on my laptop and today I'm trying to install Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise.
    I've have it on CD but when I'm trying to run it there's a message that says :

    "Virtual hard disk files can't be mounted from image files, or from removable media that isn't formatted with NTFS file system"

    Can anyone tell me where is the problem, and what should I do?

    I apologize if there is a thread with this question (I've found one but there was no answer).

    Is it an ISO file?

    Try opening File Explorer create a folder for it, if you wish name it MO2007E or what ever,
    and extract(unzip) the ISO from the disk to this folder
    Then just click the on it to auto mount
    click the setup.exe
    An ISO usually has to be "Burned" to a disk to mount which is basically unzipping it.
