I figured that something like dd might to the trick, I was thinking of
creating an ISO image of the primary partition, placing that onto the
hidden partition. Then I need an option to make the hidden partition
bootable, to avoid using any floppies. It could boot into a linux
based distribution such as ubuntu I guess, and present the user with a
menu allowing them to override the contents on the first partition
with the contents of the ISO image hidden on the second partition?
Lets forget for now using a hot key to boot the second (hidden)
partition and assume we can just make the switch of the bootable
partitions in the BIOS for repair purposes?
Thank you for all your help!
