I have been wondering, how to make a recovery partition, such as System76 does with its Ubuntu laptops:

There isn’t an included recovery disc you can run off of in case your system gets messed up. Instead, there’s a recovery partition you can boot into to start a full recovery. Source

How do they make those? Is it simply a copy of system when first installed? How can I make a recovery partition fo my own?
