Not tested myself yet, but RH EL, and so CentOS, introduced support for
Relax-and-Recover in version 6.8:

Based on http://relax-and-recover.org/usage/ it should be feasible...

Had time today to check Relax and Recover.

I screwed up a 128GB flash drive trying to get Mondo working but was able to
a rescue disc and backup to my file system where I was able to copy both to
another computer.

The backup file can't be on the same partition as the rescue iso.

Have another flash drive on the way.
