    Is there a way to recreate the Lion recovery partition? Due to some drive swapping/imaging I deleted mine and would like to get it back.

    Reinstall Lion. The Installation will see that it is missing and creates the partition.

    I did not do a clean install but upgraded straight to lion GM. Where do I find the recovery partition?

    You can't, it's hidden. If you need to recover then press "alt" on startup before the Apple logo appears.

    No it is "Command" and "R"

    EDIT: But I suppose Option would get you to the HDD selection screen as well.

    I have a Bootcamp partition, will doing this break it when the Lion installer recreates the recovery partition?
