The recovery partition is still there, it has just been removed from the boot options by your new install. Just go to:

Control panel, select classic view if necessary, administrative tools, computer management, storage, disk management.

Right click on the recovery partition and select"mark partition as active". Reboot and it will run your recovery partition.

The "mark drive as active" should currently be "greyed out" on drive C as it should be currently active. I expect your recovery drive should be showing as drive D and that is the one which you should be trying to mark as active - is that what you are doing?
