Windows 7: How to create a troubleshooting boot disk for Windows 7

How to create a troubleshooting boot disk for Windows 7

OK what I want to do is to boot from a boot disk which will allow me to examine the content of the hard drive without allowing the OS or ANY third party software or driver to load. I know of Linux Live CD's which run from RAM only but I need to examine the drive like it was connected to a different computer and the drive setup as a slave. So just for the sake of the example the drive may have a virus (Webshots) on it and I do NOT want to allow anything to load or boot from this drive which includes Windows 8.1 or any third party software.

Help please
