Can you help me with the recovery partition in mountain lion?
Everything works perfect with clover. when i install recovery partition clover can load my hdd! its stuck trying to read com.apple.recovery.boot and when i try to boot recovery hd says mach_kernel error.
i can only boot with chimera bootloader.
i use uefi clover installed in the 200mb EFI partition.
when i delete the recovery partition everything works again!

I didn't try yet because i have not a fusion drive.
However create a recoveryHd partition is more trickly in fusion.
See a tutorial to create a real recoveryHd , then you are able to experiment a fake one.

Unfortunately, I seem to have a more fundamental problem with my Virtualbox build and iCloud? (see attachment) Could somebody please advise how I can fix this?

I already tried signing into iCloud on a real MAC with my Apple ID and it works fine no problem, but not on Virtualbox.

 

Also, does anyone know why the Virtualbox doesn't have a Recovery partition by default and why it needs to be hacked at all unlike VMware? Even if we put this fake recovery partition on the virtualbox, holding down the ALT/Option key doesn't bring up any boot menu!?

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

I made my recovery HD using this software. Much simpler and it's the full partition size, like one a real mac. I then used the How-to above for fixing the reboot and then no fmm problem. Worked great! Thanks!
