Install game on real Amiga 1200 from ADF?

Hello,
everything these days is WhdLoad, but there are games which have HD installers and I would like to try that.

However, I would like to keep FDD drive in this machine, instead of Gotek (A500 is for that).

I know I can save ADF image to DF0 using Trackdisk, but I would like to avoid that if possible for just installing the game to HDD.

Is it possible to use virtual floppy somehow in this case? You know, insert ADF to virtual floppy click install, then next and next etc....

Is there some tool for that?

So i went with this:
http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/diskimage.m68k-aos

and this:
http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/DiskImageGui

It installed OK, but after reboot I get message when trying to run DiskImageGUI:

Echo: unable to open redirection file
Echo: unable to open redirection file
Echo: unable to open redirection file
Echo: unable to open redirection file
.....

@amigappc

diskimage from http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/diskimage.m68k-aos comes with its own Gui. Works right out of the box.

That DiskImageGUI you linked is for a different version of diskimage.device written by Thore Böckelmann.

You'll find your correct version of GUI in Sys:System\ (if not overwritten or deleted)

I'm also very happy with GoADF. Easy to use and will do the job you are asking for and more. This is a program still in development and should be supported.

GoADF seems like good option, i might try it.
It does not support mounting of CDROM virtual drives, ISO images?

I don't think so but you could always suggest it to the developer. He might implement it.
