I would like to create a bootable backup partition like found on DELL, HP, etc..  I would like it to display a message at boot "press f10 to restore computer".  If the user presses F10 it boots into a recovery program that allows them to click a button to deploy an image to restore the computer to it's original state.

I already have my drives partitioned for OS, DATA, and Backup Image.  I currently am using Norton Ghost and can boot from the norton ghost boot disk to restore, or I can use the ghost GUI in windows.  I can do this easily, but I am looking to create an option for the non techie user who wouldn't have a clue on how to do this.  I just want them to press F10 at boot and click restore.

Any help is greatly appreciated

If you are looking for an easy solution manageable even by non techies you can give a look at "Acronis true image" it will do backups and create a bootable partition where pressing a certain key will bring the recovery window.

I have already setted up this system of a computer and it was working like a charm. Very easy to maintain.
