    When trying to create a recovery partition, I receive this error message:

    Error (async): File system formatter failed (-69832). Suggestions?

      The problem with Sierra is the System Integrity Protection. To solve this you need to disable it.
      2 ways
      1)
      Reboot system pressing CMD+R to run in Recovery mode from Internet.
      Utility > Terminal
      csrutil disable; reboot
      After that you can run Recovery Partition Creator without problem creating a recovery on your main Disk
      2)
      Run Recovery Partition Creator and create the recovery partition on a external USB
      Reboot system pressing Alt and boot to the recovery installed on the external USB
      Utility > Terminal
      csrutil disable; reboot
      After that you can run Recovery Partition Creator without problem creating a recovery on your main Disk

      After creating the recovery partition on main Disk you can re-enable System Integrity Protection.
      The process to re-enable is:
      Reboot the system to recovery partition (Alt -> Recovery partition)
      Utility > Terminal
      csrutil enable; reboot

      PS. When you create a recovery partition with this tool you can’t boot into recovery with CMD+R but you can use Alt and then select Recovery Partition

    I have an AppleRAID (mirror) set consisting of two SSDs. I have added a GUID Partition table to the RAID so I can have multiple partitions in the RAID (instead of having multiple RAIDs built from multiple partitions on both disks). Now, I want to create a Recovery Partition, but the “Recovery Partition Creator” app says: “You cannot specify an AppleRAID set (and a set should not have a partition map)”. A GUID partition table on my RAID is not standard, I know, but it works. Is there any technical reason why I could not put a recovery partition on it?

    • Christopher Silvertooth says:

      I haven’t actually tried to put one on an Apple RAID Set but Apple acknowledged a long time ago that you would not be able to have an apple raid with recovery partition. That may have changed but I haven’t seen any info regarding it. If I get a chance I will take a look.
