Forum Question: Recovery Partition Missing From Lion

I upgraded my hard drive in my MacBook Pro using Carbon Copy Cloner to migrate my data. Yesterday I installed Lion 10.7.2 update and enabled iCloud. Under Find My Mac it says:
“Recovery partition required.”
How do I get the recovery partition installed if it is indeed not there?

    It sounds like when you used the cloning software to upgrade your drive, it only copied the main partition and left out the small recovery partition.
    Not sure how to get it back.
    The first thing I would try is to simply install Lion again from the app store. That might do it.
