Take the winpe ISO from Imaging with free Macrium
It can backup/restore ext2/ext3/fat32/ntfs. It can resize partitions on restore. What filesystem have both linux partitions?

i dont want to backup/restore the ubuntu and swap partitions.
I only want the windows 7 partition backed up, and i was wondering if i only backup this partition(and the 100mb system reserved)will it not boot properly if i restore because of how ubuntu is the main bootloader?

grub is in MBR! So if you don't replace the MBR bootcode.... it's fine.
MBR bootcode is not replaced on restore... and if it is... it restores as it was backupped.

But if you do a "startup repair" in win7.... it replaces the mbr bootcode!!
