    I've used my USB Mountain Lion on 2 different MBAs.

    Both of them were lacking recovery partition. I didn't do any custom installation. Everything works but I don't have any recovery partition. :confused:

    P.S I checked it in terminal with "diskutil list" command.

    Here is the solution by our fellow member. You'll need to re-download Mountain Lion from the App Store to get the BaseSystem.dmg.
