Regarding O&O RescueBox/O&O BlueCon
It is possible to execute the data restoration directly from the bootable O&O RescueBox-CD or the O&O BlueCon-CD without needing a bootable Windows operating system! More information on this can be found in the O&O RescueBox/O&O BlueCon user's handbook or at http://www.oo-software.com
