Restoring Bootcamp to external HDD

So I want to create a bootcamp partition (25GB) and then clone this to an external harddrive, so in effect install Windows 8 onto the bootcamp, and copy everything over to a dedicated NTFS partition on my external hard disk. The end result will be me booting up from rEFIt into Windows 8 using an external HDD, and deleting the bootcamp partition (so that I have more space, and can carry around Windows 8 on the external HDD)

Please help me on how to do this, as I have tried using Windows - EaseUS ToDo Backup application to clone the Bootcamp partition and when I tried to boot up, it says No bootable media on disk.

I am thinking about using Winclone, but not sure on how to go about the whole process.

Thanks for any help
