I tried OSFMount on a image of a SD card, but it doesn't detect its filesystem. Seems for me it requires a partition image, not drive image. Any other way?
Your question is not written as a software recommendation. Can you edit it and make it one. You'll also need to describe what a raw HDD image is - what was it made with? The question also looks surprisingly like superuser.com/questions/835296/…; Smit Johnth is a bad pseudonym ;-)– user416Apr 24, 2015 at 17:32

1John: "How to" = "off-topic" here. Reading between the lines, you're looking for some software to mount raw HDD images. I'd suggest you to edit and re-phrase your question accordingly (it already attracted several votes to be closed as off-topic/too broad). While doing so, please check What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? – you e.g. can't complain "Win7 only :(" if you didn't specify what Windows version you're using ;)– Izzy ♦Apr 27, 2015 at 9:30
Have you tried Gnu/Linux. This sort of thing is easy using the Unixes. To run Gnu/Linux in Microsoft's windows, you will need VirtualBox (or similar).– ctrl-alt-delorJun 2, 2016 at 8:43

You can convert a raw image into a VHD basically it just needs some extra headers.
Microsoft created a tool called vhdtool.exe which can convert the raw image. A technet post here lists all the tools for hyper-v http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/121.hyper-v-tools.aspx.
Please note as Microsoft has terminated technet things are getting hard to find.
As an alternative you can use VirtualBox and its VBoxManage tool to convert a raw disk dump into a VHD-file:
VBoxManage.exe convertdd disk.raw disk.vhd --format VHD
You can then mount the VHD (windows 7 and above only though)
To do this:
- Open Computer Management (In admin tools control panel)
- Click Disk Management
- Click Action -> Mount VHD (If greyed out click on the list of drives)
Make sure you work on a copy of the image file as the vhdtool.exe tool writes directly to the file specified!!
Also you will need to rename the file to .vhd manually after
