I'm sure there's a CLI command for this.

Depending on when the VHD needs to be mounted (before or after login), put it in a startup script, or as a batch file in your (or "all users") startup folder.

Can you point me to one of those scripts?

Sure. I think this will help:

Basically you put a bunch of diskpart commands in a file, and feed that to diskpart. And it turns out that diskpart can mount VHD's.

Note that this probably has to be executed with elevated privileges.
