    The best option is to make a disk image using a suitable tool like Acronis (
    You can create a small 'recovery partition' with Ranish ( and then use Acronis to create a compressed image in the recovery partition.

    You won't be able to to a restore with a keypress, buy all you have to do is boot from the acronis CD and restore the image when you need to.
