Windows "Windows 8 build 7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508 contains a number of references to a brand new feature in Windows: Portable Workspaces. Microsoft will allow Enterprise customers to create USB storage driven copies of Windows. 'Portable Workspace is a Windows feature that allows you to run Windows from a USB storage device', notes Microsoft in its description of the feature inside Windows 8." So, yeah, something we've been waiting for in Windows since, well, forever. Also, push notifications, a screenshot tool and a new webcam application have been discovered as well.

This isn't intended as flame bait so I hope it's not taken that way but why would you bother using Windows embedded for your recovery tools if you have to worry about graphics and chipset drivers?
There are hundreds of Linux recovery distros out there and the good think about Linux is very rarely do you need to load any additional drivers. Surely there must be at least one that fits your needs?
