Excellent recovery system (Free)
I know a lot of people HATE Windows 8 -- but if you download the FREE Windows 8 ENTERPRISE (180 day free trial) you can install a Windows to Go system on to an external USB device (use an SSD and it's great) which BOOTS AND RUNS from the USB and runs as a FULL windows system -- not a LIVE system but a real Windows system. (This is a REAL running system not an INSTALLATION Disk). You can install stuff just like you can on a normal Windows system. It's a genuine portable system which will boot on any device that allows booting from a USB device. If you use an SSD it runs perfectly fast enough too.
Now if you install things like OFFICE, PHOTOSHOP, Partition Wizard and Backup / recovery software like Acronis you can use this as a full working Windows system and it will boot even if the main HDD on the computer is broken. You can also install VLC and a load of other stuff making this a very convenient PORTABLE windows running system - far easier than messing around with things like BARTPE or trying to boot and run VHD's.
OK it's Windows 8 but if your main system is broken you can use this to recover it very quickly with all the tools in one place. - Meanwhile while the system is being repaired you can still watch a Video / listen to music or do other things at the same time as it's a FULL windows system.
Normally the USB devices have to be certified but if you do it THIS way then you can use ANY USB device.

no idea on this one -- somebody will just have to try it and see. However creating a new "recovery" toolbox system every 180 days really isn't too much of a hassle especially as the whole process only takes around 15 - 20 mins.
