I need some advice on recovery options for a new Win7 installation on a new hard drive. I recently replaced the HDD on an ASUS laptop and installed windows 7 via a USB ISO file. Unlike a shop bought PC there was no option to create system image discs for recovery purposes so was wondering how i would go about recovering if the worst should happen and i need to 'reset' the system and preserve user data? I have only just installed windows so the installation is 'as new', so Is there a way to create a system image to put on discs or external media and how do i do it? Or is ther some other way?

Make backups routinely...or clone the partition/disk routinely.

use the windows 7 backup and recovery to make a system image OR use your favorite cloning tool (Acronis True Image, Norton Ghost, etc)
