Ubuntu – How to create recovery partition to reinstall Ubuntu


I have an HP laptop that came with Windows 7 installed with a recovery partition which was accessible through the boot menu in the same way you could access the BIOS. I wanted to be able to create an Ubuntu recovery partition that would be able to be accessed and used to reinstall Ubuntu from scratch, if I ever need to, just like an HP or Dell would come with a Windows recovery partition. Is this possible and if so how?

The easiest way to make a partition backup is to use dd with cron. You can create the task that will run automatically in the time you want to.
