You can create a recovery disk/CD from your Microsoft OS.

Not sure if you just want the system recovery CD, but that one can be created as mentioned above.

You can also use Windos Backup for backing up your PC every now and then. You can then make a complete restore of your PC using the system recovery disc.

here is how to make one :  http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-57604101-285/how-to-create-a-system-image-in-windows-8/

but you cannot boot from that image on the usb drive - it is used when you put the image from the usb drive to the "new" disk in your system, and boot from disk
