Create light weight (trimmed-down) Windows live CD

Create light weight (trimmed-down) Windows live CD

I need to create a Windows live CD. Is there any way I can create a light weight Windows (any version) live CD through which I can just get the basic windows explorer. The purpose is just to copy important files from/to a crashed system quickly. I encounter scenarios like this often and it usually takes a lot of time booting live Linux CDs. Any ideas would be very helpful.

Although there is no explorer support, there is a file manager for it as well as the command prompt. Plus, countless plugins and driver support."
