YUMI works for me
I have used YUMI a fair bit over the last few years. I have a bootable HDD with a couple of Linux distro's as well as Ghost, Hiren's and other bootable tools. This works well when needing to backup a faullty windows install. The only downside is you can only have one copy of the Windows 7/8 installation files on the bootable HDD. Unless this has changed with a recent update.
