    Hi,

    What's everyone's recovery partition named? For some reason the ML installer decided to name mine Recovery-10.8 instead of the old Recovery HD. Just wondering if something got messed up somewhere... This happened both on a Lion->ML upgrade and clean install using USB stick.

    Also, anyone actually verify what Internet Recovery installs if you upgraded to ML?

    Thanks!

    I know when I was using 10.8 GM release from a few weeks ago, the recovery partition was called Recovery-10.8. I guess they didn't change it on final (?).

    I'll check my new install (I'm just in the middle of a time machine backup) and post back.

    EDIT: Yep, it's called Recovery-10.8

    Weird. Seems very not Apple-like. Oh well, guess this is normal then!

    I did an upgrade from Lion to ML and mine is still Recovery HD. As I understand it, it will only be called Recovery 10.8 if you did a clean install.
