Your post was moved to the correct forum, title was edited for clarification.

If you installed rEFIt you should not have to hold down the command + R key to boot to the Recovery partition. rEFIt detects any bootable partitions on the drive and will give you a menu item for it which should appear each time you boot the machine.

And yes, you need a Mac keyboard as a Windows keyboard is not mapped correctly for the same boot keys. The Windows + R key isn't going to work the same as command + R.
