I just found out the hard way that low-level drivers like the Nero driver for the Image Drive feature may not be compatible with Vista at all. Right after I activated the driver, Vista crashed with a BSOD and I wasn’t able to boot back into it, not even in safe mode. I was able to use the Vista installation DVD to boot into the system recovery tools and restore the system from there using the last restore point. I’m sure this may be happening because I’m still on Nero 6… they never managed to explain to me why I should be updating to 7, maybe this is the first good reason.
Update: I can’t find any tool that lets me mount iso images on Vista… Microsoft’s own Virtual CD Control Panel doesn’t work either. Any hints?
