How to Mount an ISO to a Thumb Drive
An ISO image is digital copy of a physical CD or DVD. It is often used to digitally distribute operating systems (mainly Linux) as well as used to backup other CDs or DVDs. If your computer does not contain a disc drive, you will need to mount the ISO to a flash thumb drive to access and use the data contained on the ISO file. This is accomplished using a virtual disc drive and some basic Windows commands.
Download and install a virtual disc image mounting utility. These utilities create a virtual disc drive, allowing you to mount the ISO file, as if it were a physical CD/DVD in a physical CD/DVD drive. Some applications that allow you to do this are MagicDisc, Daemon Tools and Virtual CloneDrive.
Launch the virtual disc drive application and open the ISO image to mount it. Be sure to note the drive letter associated with the virtual drive.
Insert the USB flash into the computer's USB slot.

Open the Command Prompt by typing "cmd" into the "Search" box (Vista and later) or opening the "Run" dialog from the "Start" menu and typing "cmd" and clicking "OK."
Type "xcopy D:\*.* /s /e /f F:\" and hit Enter. Replace "D" with the letter of the virtual disc drive. Replace "F" with the letter of the USB flash drive. Allow the process to complete. It may take a while depending on the size of the ISO image. Once complete, the ISO file will be mounted to the thumb drive.
