Mounting Config Drive on a Windows 2008 Guest?

In our setup we can't use HTTP metadata, so config drive is really our only option for metadata. Unfortunately Windows seems to have only started supporting ISO9660 drive formats with Windows 2012.

Is there any way to mount this under Windows (third-pary or native)? Currently Windows can see the disk, but only shows it as unallocated.

Our Windows Cloud-Init provides ConfigDrive support (ISO, not vfat):

Here's the direct link to the installer download:

Thanks for the reply! It doesn't look like cloud-init supports config drive for Server 2008 though.
