Oh sorry,

I tried it WITHOUT the recovery HD

and then

'Now I try it' WITH the Recovery HD

:(

Cant seem to get it to stay on now. It works 100% when ticked, but after reboot its un-ticked again... weird!
There is defo something unpicking it at boot, it must write to a file somewhere. I am lost on this one!

I was looking if someone found solution for reseting Find my mac setting, and found your posts. I have the same problem now. First I wasn't able to switch on location services because i didn't have WiFi, so I bought one. When location services are enabled and you have properly set Recovery HD, you can enable Find my Mac option. But after reboot that option is disabled and you have to enable it again.

Installing Lion in VMWare Fusion (Mac Version) also makes the Recovery HD.
Good for checking a few things.

In a real Mac
Info is stored to NVRAM,
namely this key: fmm-mobileme-token-FMM
When you select Find My Mac.

On a Hack, there is no NVRAM
subsequently when you reboot the option is unticked.

there must be some way past this, the issue prob is with the boot loader!

slice has a boot loader with NVRAM emulation, maybe he can add the value.

Hi,
finally i have created a regular Recovery Hd partition on my Hackintosh and i was able to get "Find my Mac" option under iCloud PrefPanel ... ;)
My first try was wrong : i have converted my partition from MBR to GUID.
Doing so i haven't EFI partition , so i didn't get Find My Mac .... :thumbsup_anim:

Now instead i have reinstall from scratch OSX LIon on GUID partition and even if Recovery HD partition wasn't automatically created , i was able to manually create one.

The Right Partition scheme it should be this:
GUID
EFI partition 209,7 Mb -> automatically created
OSX LION -> Test HD 20GB -> created during installation
Recovery HD -> 650Mb manually created after installation ...


Now i'm trying to make and to use a Fake "RecoveryHD" and to solve disabling "Find My Mac" option after a reboot ...

UPDATE
see my new topic
