I have bought myself a SSD and replaced the internal disk with it. I was running Lion before (latest patch level). I'm using Time Machine to back my laptop up.
When I was done replacing my HDD I booted up a Lion installation USB stick.
I created one partition on my SSD and told it to restore from my Time Machine backup.
This worked great, however I also want to again turn on FileVault and I'm getting the error:
FileVault can’t be turned on for the disk “Macintosh HD”.
Some disk formats don’t support the recovery partition required by encryption.
To use encryption, reinstall this version of Mac OS X on a reformatted disk.
I've read that this is because I'm now missing the recovery partition (Didn't even know I had that).
- What are my options here?
- Can I create this partition manually?
Do I need to reinstall Lion again (cleanly), patch it, and then restore from Time Machine?
