    hi, yesterday i bought a macbook air 11 ( my second one) and i made a backup of the first one with time machine and restored to the new one, and now i dont have the lion recovery partition.

    is this normal? when you restore from time machine back up you lose the lion recovery partition?

    Normally no, but what makes you think, you don't have the Lion Recovery partition anymore?
