Maybe i do not need it to be at the same offset but... I have 2 PCs. I deleted all the partitions on one of them and realize the first partition is to restore the os VERY quickly. I had the partition on the other PC. How do i copy the partition and copy it to the same location so the firmware can launch it correctly and allow me to restore quickly.

You can use the command line dd utility from a bootable Linux live CD. It will make a block-level copy of one drive to the other.
