Mac Pro :: No Recovery Partition - How To Make USB Recovery Boot Drive

Sep 12, 2014

I'm on a 2008 model Mac Pro 8-core system for work.  For whatever reason it doesn't have a recovery partition.  I read that if I don't have a recovery partition, I can't make a recovery USB bootable drive....so how do I make one?  And no, I cannot reinstall the OS on here, that would be beyond detrimental to what's going on here.  (too many details to get into) 

Alternatively, can I make one with my 10.8.5 MacbookPro at home and run it here on my Lion system?

How works the data recovery once the disk is out of the computer ? Is there necessarily a "white room" process wich is very expensive ?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Is Recovery Disk Also Updated To 10.7.4

May 11, 2012

I would be interested to know if updating, for example, Lion 10.7.2 to 10.7.3, or 10.7.3 to 10.7.4, also updates the System on the Lion Recovery Disk. 

I thought I could find out by booting on the Recovery Disk, but there's no "About this Mac" item in this System's Apple menu.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recovery Disk Assistant Won't Run?

Jun 22, 2012

I have a MBP mid-2010, originally with Snow Leopard, but long since running Lion (currently the latest release, 10.7.4). When I installed Lion, I created a recovery partition on the MBP's boot disk. This was about 9 months ago. I now want to run Recovery Disk Assistant to create a recovery partition on an external disk, but when I start Recovery Disk Assistant it says: "Lion recovery could not be created"... because the recovery HD on this computer is damaged or not present...etc. 

However, if I open a Terminal and run "Diskutil list", I see: 

[Code]....

So, the recovery partition appears to be there. I presume Recovery Disk Assistant thinks it's damanged. However, I can hold down Alt/Option when booting my MBP and I see the recovery partition. I can even boot from the recovery partition and everything works as expected.

MacBook Pro, mid-2010 MBP running Mac OS 10.7.4

IMac (Intel) :: Will Not Boot Hard Disk And Recovery

Jun 1, 2014

The problem is that the mac will not boot period.When I press the Option on start up, it takes me to a screen where I could select to boot from the Macintosh Hard disk or Recovery 10.9 disk.Choosing either of these still does not boot up the computer. 

I think that the hard disk is damaged but what I do not understand is why I can still get the option to choose the Hard disk or the Recovery disk.I am waiting to hear from Apple Support on when I can take my imac to the genius bar and I was wondering if there is anything I can do before then. Intel imac 27-inch bought refurbished in November 2010 with imac apple care.Intel quard core processor, 4 Gig RAM, 1 terabyte HD

Apr 10, 2012

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Stop Recovery Disk Assistant From Downloading

Apr 22, 2012

Since I planned to upgrade the stock disk on my macbook pro I created a USB stick backup of the Lion OS using Lion recovery disk assistant. It built a bootable copy of my Lion OS. I replaced the drive, booted from the USB stick Lion, formatted the new drive with disk utility with one OSX partition, and bunch of Linux partitions for the planned dual/triple/etc. boot.  I then used the recovery disk menu to reinstall OSX on the new disk. It took off and started the download just like while booting with R key or from the recovery partition AGAIN!.  This is a 2 hour proposition and is totally ridiculous. I need to be able to reinstall without downloading Lion every time. how to stop this new Apple invention from doing this download?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recovery HD Does Not Work - How To Do Clean Install

Jun 28, 2012

I have a problem with the recovery partition on my SSD. There is a recovery partition. I can se it in the disk utility but it's seems like it's not working. When I boot the system with the option key I can select the recovery hd but when I do I just get a grey screen with a "forbidden" sign and the computer turns it self off a minute later.I just bought a brand new Macbook Pro 13". I swapped the internal drive to a Samsung 830 SSD but the only way i could get it to boot was to clone the original disk to my new SSD, otherwise the computer couldn't find the drive.

It just booted up with the same grey screen with the "forbidden" sign just like when i now try to boot into the recovery HD.I made a bootstick with the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant v1.0 but it can't boot from that one either. I even made it on a different computer running Lion with a working Recovery HD.I also tried to boot from a Lion dvd (and usb) I made from the image I got from the appstore but of course, the same grey sceen appears. The question now is; how do I get a working Recovery HD in Lion so I can make a clean install? The system is running fine with the clone from the original disk but I want that Recovery HD.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Utility Restore Put Recovery Hd Over Mac Hd After First Properly Copying Mac Hd?

Apr 4, 2012

I am trying to make a redundant backup image of my harddrive using something OTHER than Time Machine.  I booted to recovery because you image from a disk you are booted from.  The restore took 2 hours, and indicated the entire time in disk utility that it was restoring "Mac HD" to a similarly sized partition on my external hard drive.  When it was done, the external had a copy of my recovery drive on it.  That's crazy talk.

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Only Turns On In Recovery - Disk Utility Can't Repair Disk

Sep 12, 2014

Macbook Pro running on OSX Mavericks is having problems. 

Today I turned my Mac on, and it started up with a loading wheel and a loading bar. When the loading bar finished, the Mac turned itself off. I tried many times, same happened every time. I then went into OSX Recovery, started repairing Macintosh HD, but the error message saying "Disk Utility can't repair Macintosh HD" came up and now I don't now what to do. 

Is there any way I can back up my files in this situation? Is there any way I can repair the disk without having to erase all data and reinstalling OSX? Or do I really need to bring it to a Apple Store for repair?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

Intel Mac :: Recreate Deleted Recovery Partition In Lion

Jun 30, 2012

My iMac (27-inch, Mid 2011) came with Lion installed. I deleted the recovery partition when I triple booted with Windows 7, Ubuntu and Mac OS. 

Is there any way to re-create a deleted recovery partition in Lion? I've read that you can download Lion from the App Store & write it to a USB using the Disk Utility. 

I am currently dual booting with Mac OS X Lion (10.7.4) and Windows 7 (installed via Boot Camp).
