Yes you can put most of your utilities on a single 4GB USB including Hirens. I find it very easy to update to to the latest version.

If you are careful you can also put the Win repair disk as an ISO. It does offer to mend the mbr when you boot it but if you ignore that it works just fine.

Yes I always run the Repair disk ISO from the same USB but find you need to include the Boot folder.

The boot folder [Boot] from the system repair dvd the ISO was made from. Stored in the root of the USB.
Obviously you haven't needed to include it?

No you just use the try an unlisted iso in Yumi. It loads grub4dos to boot the iso. You need to make sure the iso name doesn't contain spaces or it doesn't boot.

Ah I see how you did it. You loaded the Repair ISO as a Windows 7 Installation ISO. That works better but you have to do it before you load the Hirens otherwise YUMI complains it doesn't have enough space. You can edit the menus to give it the correct name afterwards. There is also a reported problem with any Linux distros on the same stick but I have just tried Puppy Linux and that seems to work ok.

My Windows system repair is the first option in the list.

This is not the same as the linux boot environment you are using. The linux boot environment generally works and I use it.
Please excuse my intrusion on this thread.

Will this work to restore an image made with Macrium (free) on Windows 7? The issue I have is that the rescue CD I made from Macrium (free) does not see my WD external drive.

Yes it does. Macrium PE environments are forwards compatible. But I suggest you try it on a small test partition first. This tutorial will give you some ideas on how to do that. Imaging with free Macrium
