    So about a week ago I put my 2 850 Evo SSD's into a RAID 0 format on my MacBook pro. When I was setting up iCloud I noticed that I couldn't enable Find my Mac in settings. It said that it required a recovery partition that I guess got deleted when I erased the drives. Is there anyway that I can enable it without the partition. if not is there a way to install a recovery partition?

    Nope, there's no way around it

    I believe you need to boot into the internet recovery, repartition your drive and then reinstall OSX. Since you're running a RAID 0 setup, that complicates the issue, I'm not sure what the steps ought to be

    Just redownload the OS from the App Store and install it right over top of your existing installation. Backup first just to be safe, but this will not erase your data and will create a recovery partition.
