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: http://www.brunerd.com/blog/2012/03/21/update-create-lion-recoveryhd-partition-q uickly-without-reinstalling/
Waiting your answer. Thank you very much.
So: wouldn't it be easier to use the script linked on your previous post, the Recovery Partition Creator v2.0.5?
Yep. Since you purchased it from the App Store you're half way there to recreating the Recovery HD. I've use that script along with the OS X Mountain Lion.app in /Applications and it works great.
Just remember to copy the OS X Mountain Lion.app file to another folder somewhere like your Downloads folder so you have it for future use.
