This is what I am looking for. I've tried a few things but I have never gotten it to work.

IS it possible to run WinPE directly off a USB drive not using an WIM file?

I am wanting to use this as a diagnostic tool, I want changes to the OS to be persistent. Like if I have a scanner on there like TDSSKiller, or a virus scanner, I want to be able to keep the programs up to date without having to download an update every time I boot the environment.

Basically it will be WinPE but installed to the disk like a normal windows install would be.

Thanks for your help.
