Is there any way to create a checkpoint in Windows 7 and then be able to fully revert to that checkpoint, this without using, for example Hyper-V? I.e, I want something that is equivalent to the "revert" function in Hyper-V and VMWare but I want to do this directly on the host, not on a virtual machine.

the best way to do this so it will just be like having a VM snapshot is to have a second hdd in your master and use the built system image to do a backup. that gets the entire drive not just the system files.  If the machine was in  the domain with a system image you can be right back at that point.  It uses the same name for its target so I just rename the directory to something meaningful to me and rename it back when I need to use that one.

to put it back you boot to a windows DVD and choose to repair and restore from an image.
