Repair disk updating boot support partitions Chat unmonitoredstranger

I was on site working with a customer when we realized that we could not enable Filevault 2.A quick look at the output of “diskutil list” from the terminal told us the recovery partition had gone missing (required if you want Filevault disk encryption).




Well, we had already spent a good deal of time deploying and configuring the Mac Image as well as the Boot Camp image so we didn’t want to “re-install lion” just to regain the Recovery Partition – which in turn allows us to encrypt the drive. We scoured the internet looking for the best way to recover this.

I found a post from a Google employee, Clay Caviness, who figured out how to put the recovery partition back.
