Reset via power button _must_ always work. It is basic function of the device's firmware, and not affected by anything you can install on n7.

No, and I don't really plan doing that. But, if you really, really need to install factory image, do following (and read all steps first, if you do it correctly, you won't loose any data.
1. Backup your current rom
Go to recovery and backup system and boot partitions. You need only these two, but you can backup data too, if you really want.

2. Flash factory image
Now, you'll flash only the "system" and "boot" partitions, so that your "data" will not be erased.
Download the factory images. It contains one ZIP file. Extract files "boot.img" and "system.img" from that file.
Reboot to bootloader, and flash boot.img and system.img via fastboot. You do _not_ need to erase any other partition than system.
Code:
fastboot erase system
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
3. Go to your recovery again
Reboot to recovery immediately. Do not let Android boot up. Use vol up/down keys to select recovery mode in bootloader and power to confirm

4. Create backup of factory rom's system and boot
Create backup of "system" and "boot" partition. Now you _have_ to backup only these two. This backup contains the factory ROM.

5. Add this backup to MultiROM
Still in recovery, go to Advanced->MultiROM->Add ROM, select what you will on the first screen, and it will then let you choose between "ZIP file" and "Backup" . Tap on "Backup" and select backup from step 4.

6. Restore your main ROM
Now just restore your backup from step one as usual.

Could you tell us how u did it , also when installing multirom when/how do u flash the kezec hard boot kernel I don't get when I'm meant to do that

*sigh* do whatever you will: https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B5...NDcGJtZmc/edit

These are just built images. They may not be built correctly. You can try to use howto at http://www.webos-ports.org/wiki/Testing_Nexus_7, it should work, but I did not test it. Don't ask me anything about them, as I will provide no support.
