Automatic restore of an image
Does anyone know if there's a way to automatically restore an image (from an USB drive or from another partition) with Windows 7 Embedded Standard 32-bits. By automatically, I mean with no action required from the user in the case of a USB stick (the restore starts when the PC boots and the USB drive is plugged in) or with minimal action from the user in the case of an other partition.
The context is a device that will be used be a client and which has no display monitor attached to it. We don't want the client to be forced to plug a monitor in the device to be able to restore the factory image.

Thank you for your answer.
Well, from my point of view, I don't think that task is as much complicated as you say. There would be a single file on a USB drive which would be the image file. As soon as the system boots on the USB drive, it would simply whip the entire hard drive and replace its content by the image. I'd say it's pretty straight forward and doesn't require much input from a user.
There must be a way to do that (like writing a batch file or something..?). There are some viruses that erases all drive's content when executed on booting. So it should be possible to erase the hard drive and install a new image...
Anyway, thanks for your help! I understand that what I ask is unusual, so I don't expect to get a perfect solution. I was only checking if anyone might have done that before, but it's obviously not the case.
