Quick Recovery

Is there any way to make a bootable cd, then without having to touch any keys, mount the cdrom and copy the image file from the cd to the hard drive? The idea is for the user to have no interaction. Comp breaks, they insert the cd, copies the orignal setup, and thats it. I have looked into partimagic, but even then, the user must do something. I don't need a script, just ideas. I can make an image of the hard drive. Make a bootable CD. Somehow make it "auto-start" the recovery process. Restart.

Have a look at knoppix ( It can be configured to copy itself to the hdd (without installation). It also runs without a hdd.
