No, my pc doesn't allow me to auto boot from the recovery partition. So I need:
- a boot disk that supports ntfs
- one that has a command line so I can access my 64bit NTFS Windows 7 drive
- one that supports 64bit systems
You can boot from a "16bit" bootdisk. The bitness (if that exists) doesn't matter.
Just ask around for a Windows 7 setup DVD. Any one will do. You'll want to boot into setup and use the "Repair System" option.

Microsoft also has downloads of Windows PE, but it's only on Technet now :(
You can make one on any Windows 7 64 bit system, go to the All Programs menu, then the Maintenance Folder, then select "Create System Repair Disc"
