I tried searching this forum for a straight answer, but could not find it. Can somebody please tell me how to get Lion to repartition my hard drive and recreate the Recovery HD partition. I was running out of space so I merged my two partitions, but of course the Lion Recovery HD was positioned squarely in between the two partitions I was merging. I have heard that you can "reinstall Lion" to recreate it. I have not tried that yet, but I was hoping for an easier way. Downloading Lion is going to take 2 hours, and quite frankly, once its done I'm guessing I'm going to have to reapply patches and such. Is there a way to just tell Lion to repartition my drive and create a recovery partition? I wish this was a function of the Recovery Partition Assistant Tool, but alas it is not. In fact that tool does not even work if you don't have the Lion Recovery partition on your boot drive. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
