    Hi everyone!

    Recently I replaced the optical drive on my mid 2012 13" MBP for a 256 Gb SAMSUNG SSD.

    I was able to successfuly configure a Fusion Drive using the SSD and the internal HDD (750 Gb), as shown below:

    MacBook-Pro:~ marco$ diskutil list
    /dev/disk0
    #: TYPE NAM SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *256.1 GB disk0
    1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
    2: Apple_CoreStorage 255.7 GB disk0s2
    3: Apple_Boot Boot OS X 134.2 MB disk0s3
    /dev/disk1
    #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *750.2 GB disk1
    1: EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1
    2: Apple_CoreStorage 748.8 GB disk1s2
    3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk1s3
    /dev/disk2
    #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: Apple_HFS Marco's MBP *997.9 GB disk2
    Logical Volume on disk0s2, disk1s2
    4819CB5E-32D2-42F6-89DE-456790BA3F47
    Unencrypted Fusion Drive

    However, now I can`t boot into Recovery partition. When I press command-R and option-command-R. during startup now I get the Internet Recovery, instead of booting from the Recovery Partition. And, when I press control-option-R during startup now I get my "Marco's MBP" shown twice, and no Recovery partition. I've also reinstalled Yosemite to no avail.

    Anybody has a clue about how is it happening?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry ... My mistake.

    Where I wrote control-R and option-control-R, please read as command-R and option-command-R.

    Sorry again.

    OP, in the future, you can re-edit your post to correct any mistakes such as control-r vs command r. I took the liberty of editing so no one else mistakes what you meant.
