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.

This should help

Or you can buy software to do this heres one for $20 (not tested by me)
