While you can use one Windows system to boot another, they may not always play nicely together. Windows 8 (for example) will modify the boot record for the other O/S so it can boot it. This can prevent you booting the target system WITHOUT using Windows 8, even if the two systems are on separate hard drives. A better solution is to use GAG (free download from which lets you have several bootable systems and gives you a menu to choose from. It doesn't make any changes to the systems it boots. Also it doesn't restrict you to only Windows systems. Mix Windows and Linux at will.
