    My original Windows 8 clean installation put the recovery partition at the start of the drive. I see the logic of placing it at the end of the drive. Why did MS originally decide to place it at the start of the drive?

    End of drive only if the disk does not contain any other partitions than GPT system partitions and Windows partition. After Windows partition C: and before first data partition if the disk contains additional partitions.

    The point is, if placed manually it must be directly after C: partition.
