OK that answers why you couldn't find it before. I didn't realize your cd rom drive was E.
If you now follow the instructions the steps should work.

From what I have found that is for the default pics used for accounts.
Where were you trying to copy them from?
What steps did you do to try?

1. Start the Recovery Console.

2. Select the installation you wish to access.

3. Type the administrator password.

4. Type MAP to determine the drive letter assigned to the CD-ROM.

5. Type Expand <CD-ROM DRIVE:>\i386\pci.sy_ c:\Windows\System32\drivers /y. You should receive:

pci.sys
1 file(s) expanded.

6. Type exit.

If no admin password was ever setup just leave it blank.
You can skip the MAP part also since you already know your cdrom is the E drive now.

If you just click enter it should take you to the prompt.

Type Expand <CD-ROM DRIVE:>\i386\pci.sy_ c:\Windows\System32\drivers /y

In your case you would Type
Expand E:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\Windows\System32\drivers /y

There is no command... if you never setup a administrator password then leave it blank and click enter.

This is not what you type.

Expand <CD-ROM DRIVE:>\i386\pci.sy_ c:\Windows\System32\drivers /y



This is what you type
Expand E:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\Windows\System32\drivers /y
