Your precious file is on :

[your CD or Win7 installation directory]\sources\boot.wim\2\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-b..os-loader.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7100.0_en-us_e78bb2673919a7bc\

if you can't get this exact directory check for the one who contain b..os-loader.resources

I've edited out the part about corrupted file, thinking it's will keep future answer if they come focused about the real question. Thanks for your edited and improved answer I will check it out. –  Eran Sep 17 '09 at 7:06
    
Well, it gave me the right direction. it is indeed in boot.wim, thanks. –  Eran Sep 17 '09 at 10:29

To have the full answer on record:

The file is indeed in the boot.wim image which should be opened with Win7 AIK.
AIK contains a command-line tool called imagex that can mount that image into a folder.
The file is in the 2nd path of the image, so the mounting command would look like:
imagex /mount d:\sources\boot.wim 2 c:\mounted

In the mounted folder the file is in the same place as after installation, that is c:\mounted\windows\system32\en-US
