Windows 7 Recovery Image using WinPE or WinRE

#1
heya,

i want to make a recovery partition but i would like to know, can i use WinRE to start the recovery process. i have made a backup/recovery image using the windows 7 backup/restore program (which is in the control panel) but you either need to launch it from the control panel, or a bootable dvd. the question i am asking is, am i able to use WinRE to start the recovery process and then use the backup image made using the windows 7 recovery program?

also the way i would like to set up my hard drive is

partition 1 = WinRE (big enough for WinRE)

partition 2 = Windows (approx 240 gb)

partition 3 = uTorrent (approx 240 gb)

partition 4 = Recovery Image (approx 20gb)

or

partition 1 = WinRE (big enough for WinRE and Recovery Image, about 20gb)

partition 2 = Windows (approx 240gb)

partition 3 = uTorrent (approx 240gb)

it is a 500gb drive, but the sizes are just ruff guesses atm, but you get the general idea.
