Extracting a file from Windows 7 distribution

Hi,

I need to extract storport.sys from checked Windows 7 distribution. I load *.iso file and burned it. I don't want to install whole checked build version of Windows 7. I just need one file. In general, how could I extract a file from the distribution?
Thank you

take any good image burning software app or virtual iso mounter and drag the file from the ISO to the desktop. apps include imgburn, daemon tools, alcohol 120, etc.

sh20,
I use IsoBuster for these situations.

I've already burned the image but I don't know how I could extract *.sys files from the DVD. In previous version of Windows I could find *.sy_ file and using EXPAND command extract *.sys files. How could I do the same in WIndows 7?

First off the DVD is not setup like previous versions ( Windows XP and below ), the OS files are not floating bare on the disc. Second the disk is not required all the files for the OS can be found in C:\Windows\Winsxs. Anyways to extract OS files from the DVD you need to mount install.wim using WAIK's toolset.

On my system storport.sys was at:
Code:
C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-storport_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_2752a4cc91827b44
