Mabook Pro will not boot up into Recovery HD

When I hold down the option key when booting up my Macbook Pro, the Recovery HD option does not show.

Does anyone have a work around solution please?

One more, for the road!
If you actually have a working Recovery Partition then try starting up while pressing the Alt + R keys.
This is a normal key combo for starting the recovery partition.

Alt + R probably won't work, at least on an Apple keyboard
Correct shortcut key for booting to the Recovery System partition is Command-R

I knew that, I was just testing you.;)
Kidding aside, you are correct, my mistake.

Many thanks. That worked.

I wonder why simply holding down the Option key at start up doesn't work though?
