I know here are many postings about recovery partition but none of them I found answers my question.

 

I know how to create the recovery partition and wich GUID code it should have. But I don't know which files to copy on it.

 

I tried to create the disk with dmtest and the BaseSystem from the Mavericks Installer but it won't to it because of the windows partition I have.

 

So can someone tell which files from the base system belong on the recovery partition? I plan to boot the partition (clover).

I have the same problem with you, and here is my solution:

So the installer creates an recovery hd on an external drive but not on the internal when you install on an hackintosh?

 

Did you then dd the partition contents of the usb stick to your internal partition?

When I launch the installer, it says that there are some features can't be enabled (Find my mac and File Vault). It appears that it don't want to add partition because it can break Windows MBR system. However, because I'm using Windows UEFI, the problem does not exist. dmtest tool gave me errors too. Cloning a working recovery partition is the last option for me, and luckily it works!

 

You can install to external drive by launching Install app on your internal drive, Clover will reboot and continue setting up. Follow the guide, including dd, and now:

/dev/disk0
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *750.2 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:                  Apple_HFS Mavericks               178.6 GB   disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s3
   4:         Microsoft Reserved                         134.2 MB   disk0s4

When I installed mavericks my disk was completly clean. I erased it and created one HFS+ part for OSX. I still got the warning and no recovery partition.

 

I still have my Mavericks install stick. I installed onto a fresh USB Stick (GUID one partition). I did not get the warning but there is no recovery partition:

/dev/disk0

   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER

   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *500.1 GB   disk0

   1:                        EFI NO NAME                 209.7 MB   disk0s1

   2:                  Apple_HFS Macintosh HD            300.0 GB   disk0s2

   3:         Microsoft Reserved                         134.2 MB   disk0s3

   4:       Microsoft Basic Data Windows                 199.3 GB   disk0s4

   5: DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC               367.0 MB   disk0s5

/dev/disk2

   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER

   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *16.0 GB    disk2

   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk2s1

   2:                  Apple_HFS ExtMac                  15.7 GB    disk2s2d

 

Update:

I used dmtest with the USB stick then. Now I have the recovery on the USB and dd it over.

Is there a recovery update for mavericks, like Lion and Mountain Lion? I don't want to go throw it manually, like you did. since I have Maverick only.

The script fails to locate the dmg image in my system so I have to tweak it a little for it to work. Try opening the script with TextEdit and manually set the path to BaseSystem.dmg and BaseSystem.chunklist. Once the partition is created open the App Store, go to Updates and install the "Mavericks Developer Preview Recovery Update".
