Default Booting from a virtual drive

My friend sent me a few ISOs of Linux and I'm using Daemon Tools as a virtual driver mounter. Is there a way I can boot from one of the virtual drives Daemon creates?

Your going to have to burn the ISO's on to a CD then boot from the CD. Virtual Drives only work from inside the OS.

virt drives only work inside the OS becasue the daemon tool you used tricked your os into thinking you had multipal drives mounted, thus being able to run games no-cd or wtvr
