You need to specify the full path to the .ISO file.


Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath 'F:\ISOs\System\Win7PE2.iso' -Verbose

From Microsoft's Mount-DiskImage TechNet entry, and from Get-Help Mount-DiskImage within PowerShell:

This cmdlet requires the full path of the VHD or ISO file.

In case you'd like to use it in a script or you are too lazy to type the full path (as I am), you can go with:

Mount-DiskImage ((Get-Item -Path ".\" -Verbose).FullName+"\ISONAME.iso")

My option:

$mountResult = Mount-DiskImage (Get-Item $iso).VersionInfo.FileName -PassThru -ErrorAction Stop

where $iso contains relative or absolute path
