Where to get windows 7 iso file of repair?
 
I need to make a bootable usb of windows 7 repair disc iso file so that I can use it in case my system doesn't boot up. On net I am getting complete windows 7 OS iso but I need only the repair disc for making bootable iso. I am not sure whether I used right word by using the word disc here 'windows 7 repair disc'.

I hope once I get the iso, I can make a bootable usb of it to be used in case of emergency

The iso that you have does repair windows also it can be used to reinstall with your windows key, if you select "Repair Install"
But the iso that you download has to be same architecture as the OS. For instace if you have windows 7 Professional you have to download Professional

You should be able to create a repair disc from within Windows. I do not know if this works but check out the following link to create a bootable USB drive.

Microsoft web site has that information on how to turn a Windows DVD into a usb install. It may or may not work with recovery discs that you purchase from the OEM.

this isnt a linux related question so i asked the mods to move it to general.

this reminds me of a few years back the fsf sent a cease and desist letter to microsoft preventing them from hosting a program on their website that would convert win-7 dvd's into bootable usb images so that they could be installed onto netbooks (i think the fsf alleged that it stole code from dd however microsoft didnt provide the sourcecode). after 6 months of litigation all the vista netbooks were converted to win-7 so they complied with the cease and desist.

edit, i think this is what op is looking for:
