Mount a partition from dd disk image

mount -o loop,offset=$((512*x)) /path/to/dd/image /mount/path
Assuming we have a disk image, ie. created by dd if=/dev/sda of=image.dd we can check the image's partition layout with fdisk -ul image.dd then, we substitute "x" with starting sector of the partition we want to mount. This example assumes that the disk uses 512 B sectors
