    hey,


    it's clear that when you install Mavericks from a USB Drive
    there is no recovery partition created, there is some solutions post installation
    but is there is any way pre installation
    while we are creating the USB installer or while we are installing OSX ?

    there is the recovery partition creator app

    which can be used after installation, didn't work with me
    but i will try again with another laptop

    also do you think it didn't work with me because of SSD ?

    I use dismakerX to make my bootable copy of Mavericks, I will confirm tonight if it made a recovery partition

    How did you create the USB installer? If you used this official method from Apple, the install will create a recovery partition. It would not have anything to do with it being a SSD.

    :confused:

    Use DiskMaker X (or Apple's official method if you prefer) and the install will create the Recovery HD.

    Here is my external Mavericks drive.
    Installed from a USB stick I made with DiskMaker X.
