Restoring files from a Vista system image in Windows 7

I had to wipe and reinstall my system over the weekend, and I had created a Windows Vista image a few weeks back. I decided to run the Windows 7 RC 1 - 64 bit on my system. It's installed perfectly and it's running really well.

However, I want to restore my docs and pictures from my 'Vista backup image', but the Windows 7 restore tool doesn't see the image file. It's on my external hard drive. It won't let me browse to that folder to select the image, which is a VHD image btw.

Does anyone know how I can access that image and restore files from it? Even mounting it would be fine.
