  Wow those were some super utilities but BartPE rapidly got replaced by UBCD4WIN and UBCD4WIN hasn't been updated in over a year. Is there a better alternative that has continued development?

I don't think the alternatives are much better, but sometimes it can help to include those in the toolbox. One of my favorites is PartedMagic.

With the proper License you can also build your own WinPE environment (based on Windows 7). Manufacturer's like paragon build their not Linux based boot CD's using that.

Or build your own WinPE using WAIK from microsoft or BartPE and just modify it depending on your needs.
