Partition - Mark as Active
use the diskpart program. From elevated command prompt. Mark RECOVERY partition on harddisk inactive instead of active!! so it never boots from harddisk!

this looks the way I and you want it. If you reboot and do bcdedit /enum all it's still the same?

check device=boot in output.

Did you do reagentc/disable as well?
