How to boot a .iso within windows with no CD burner or USB drive

I have Windows Vista Home basic, and i was wondering how i could boot from a .iso image without a CD burner or USB drive. I dont really want a virtualization program, however more of a program that creates a boot menu when windows starts, where you can boot from. Any Ideas?

You're going to have to use some sort of virtualization software or an emulator to access any image. So, have you looked into daemontools?

Yes, like Virtual PC, VMWare or Qemu.
