On Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview, it supports to mount ISO without any third-party software.

Remark: We can also perform "Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath <Image location>" to mount  a ISO and VHD file.

To dismount the disk image, we can perform "Dismount-DiskImage -ImagePath <Image location>" to dismount it.
