Hi everyone. Some days ago I took my MBP to an Apple Authorized Reseller to update the hard drive to a new one and now I have a new 1TB/7200RPM hard drive.


Everything is perfect, but I think that the recovery partition is missing. If I look in the iCloud panel, the "Find my Mac" service is disabled because "recovery partition is needed".


But, if I run "diskutil list" in the Terminal, here's the result:



   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER

   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *1.0 TB     disk0

   1:                        EFI                         209.7 MB   disk0s1

   2:                  Apple_HFS Luke                    998.6 GB   disk0s2

   3:                 Apple_Boot                         1.4 GB     disk0s3


Is the disk0s3 the recovery partition? If it's the recovery partition, why "Find my Mac" can't see it? Do I need to update or reinstall the recovery partion?


Here's a nice article I've found, but I don't know if it's right for my case: uickly-without-reinstalling/


Waiting your answer. Thank you very much.
