Repair partition is not installing with 10.9.+

The last few hard drive replacements I have done on MacBook Pros and iMacs, by installing a formatted drive, booting the machine and downloading 10.9 have not installed the repair-restore partition. What am I doing wrong?

Update

This installation was onto a 750 GB 2012 Apple hard drive from a 2012 15" MBP. It was in a MBP 13" Late 2011.

I had a ethernet connection directly going to my router. I use a cable modem. Earlier Mavericks installations using this set up, on other Macs did install the partition.
