How do I extract just the sound drivers from the Boot Camp driver CD (for my MacBook)? If I do the "Install....exe" /V /A command I just get an .MSI file.

All I need is the specific sound drivers, but for Vista, the generic Sigmatel drivers that you download off Intel's site don't work.

If it helps, I have XP installed under Parallels. Is there any way of pulling the sound drivers from there?

I've run the "Install...exe" /V /a (notice the lowercase a) and its extracted all of the drivers.

I ran the install from the command prompt on the D drive (cd drive) and when it prompted me for a location, I specified the folder I created for the drivers.

The only thing I could think of is that you executed from the C drive, and not the D or the lower case/upper case /a switch messed it up

Thanks, that did the trick. Actually, it did the same thing as one time when I tried it before, but that time it hung and I got nothing. This time it worked.

I tried to extract the drivers without success. I get either no response or the program tries the usual install.

Please help....

I have tried this everyway possible and cannot get these drivers to extract, has it been changed since this post was made originally? All this does for me is launch the installer, I have everything working except audio and I cant find the extracted audio driver anywhere. Can someone link it possibly?

BootCamp supports Vista now. No need to do any tom-foolery.

Welcome! Here's how you change drives in the Windows Command Line:

C:>{you type this}D: {ENTER}

That's it! It is actually extremely similar to Unix in many ways, but since Windows maintains this particular drive mounting scheme there's this little oddity in handling mount points.
