Create Win8 recovery of failed Z710 drive

I cannot boot up on my Z710 and failed to make a recovery disc.  I bought the same exact drive it came with, so that I can clone over from the original, since I can still see everything ok (was able to make a backup of data using a drive dock).  


I have a Cirago external dual drive dock that supports disk cloning, and using Norton Ghost v15.0 I was able to make a drive copy.  The only issue is that is did not copy the first 3 small system partitions:  1000MB recovery, 260MB EFI system, and 1000MB OEM partition.


Q1: Is there another way to create a recovery disc without using Windows (just the files on the drive)?

Q2: Is there another tool that will clone everything over better than Norton, or is there some other step I missed in doing this in Norton?


Thanks in advance for any help!
