I recently got back to Mavericks from Yosemite, everything went fine. As I normally do, I checked my HDD with the Disk Utility and found some trouble, then I boot on recovery mode to fix my HDD. I realize that the recovery partition was the Yosemite one (It's easy to see since the UI is different)
I want to get back my Mavericks recovery partition, so I followed along this instructions.
diskutil list output is a little different:
/dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_CoreStorage 499.2 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_HFS EraseRecoveryHD 650.0 MB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD *496.1 GB disk1
I deleted my recovery partition successfully with the command:
diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ EraseRecoveryHD disk0s3
But when trying to merge using this command:
diskutil mergePartitions HFS+ "Untitled 1" disk0s2 disk0s3
I get the following:
The chosen disk does not support resizing.
I don't know why my
disk0s2 does not have a name and why do I have a
BTW, I tried to avoid this trouble just by using the recovery partition I have (from Yosemite), I ran the repair disk option on recovery mode, then I booted on Mavericks and the disk utility says my HDD has the same problem as when I first checked.
