create a bootable recovery partition to restore a pc. like oem's F11

I have been fixing PCs for friends and family for years, some of them are really good at screwing up an OS a only couple months after i install a fresh copy of xp or 7. i would like to be able to create a restore method simple for them to use to reset there machine back to my initial installed state. was thinking something similar to newer PCs F11 restore method or something i could add to a bootloader in 7 or xp making it a "dualboot" with just the OS and the recovery.

Since you'd be loading a backup image into a Primary partition created for this purpose, it can be reimaged using F8 System Recovery Options.

However this is not optimal because if you're making your own backup image then it can more easily be saved externally so it's also available in case of HD failure - or you can do both.
