I've finally compiled a utility I've been trying to for awhile.

That utility is devio.

What this utility does, is serve either a disk image or iso file and allows you to mount it on a remote pc.

For example:

I mounted a 16GB iso file that contains 73 different versions of Windows on my phone.

Then I mounted it over wifi on my pc, and installed Windows 8.1 into a vhd file using WinNTSetup v3.6.5

It installed slower than directly hooking it via usb, but it was still acceptable.

I tested the copy of windows installed to the vhd, and it appeared to be working fine (No weird messages in event viewer, etc)

There are many other ways to mount the image, either through ftp, http, smb, etc.

But the protocol devio speaks allows for the lowest overhead, so in theory the best possible speed.

I have posted the source on my github here:

It should work on Android 2.x or newer.

I've uploaded the file with an apk extension, remove it after you download if you want.

Here's an example of using devio:

In android, things are mapped differently than windows, so you won't be able to mount \\.\D: or \\.\PhysicalDrive1

You would have to mount it like this:
/storage/sdcard/devio 9000 /storage/extSdCard/ISO/Windows.iso
