system image is not a virtual cd, that's what i've been trying to tell you. go ahead and make a "system image" using nero

not a disc image/virtual disc software like daemon or nero.
I know what a system image is and I know what a disc ISO/image file is. You can pull data from a system image without mounting it.

You can pull files off of a Windows made image, Acronis true image image, easeus todo backup image, etc.

here is an example i just took:

Not mounted:



Acronis True Image .tib file opened by double clicking it.

tl:dr. Of course you can.
If you get an OS going and like it..It's a good idea to image it to another drive.
every install is different.
I use WD Acronis..you just have to have a WD drive plugged in;It doesn't have to be involved..

you just don't get what a system image is. you think that a system image is an iso (virtual cd) that contains a copy of your system.
