How to manually mount Linux disk image partition without using losetup

In this case we want to mount partition #2

fdisk -lu Centos-6.6-x86_64.img
You must set cylinders.
You can do this from the extra functions menu.

Disk Centos-6.6-x86_64.img: 0 MB, 0 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 0 cylinders, total 0 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

                Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
Centos-6.6-x86_64.img1            2048     1026047      512000   82  Linux swap / Solaris
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
Centos-6.6-x86_64.img2   *     1026048    10485759     4729856   83  Linux
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.


I want to mount partition 2 which starts at 1026048.

Specify offset as: 1026048 * 512 = 525336576

How to mount partition number 2

mount -t ext4 -o loop,offset=525336576 Centos-6.6-x86_64.img /mnt
