I don't want to discourage you from learning, but you're very wrong. HP didn't stick to a particular SoC between models. I compiled this for the 2800, which happens to also work for the 4600 because they both have RockChip RK3066 SoCs. Here is a breakdown of my knowledge of the SoCs used:
Slate 7 1800 - Intel Atom
Slate 7 2800/4600 - RockChip RK3066
Slate 7 Extreme - Nvidia Tegra 4
Each of these has different kernels and different storage systems. I compiled a recovery for the 2800/4600 in this thread and the extreme in another thread with a lot of help from owners with that model. I also own a different tablet with a tegra so I kinda had an idea of how things were laid out.
I have not attempted one for the 1800 and don't plan on it because I don't have time or any knowledge of the SoC. If you would like a custom recovery for your model you may have to build it yourself. Nobody created one for the model I own, so I took charge, spent hours learning, and successfully did it. I never got any help trying to port CyanogenMod and lost interest, so I stopped developing for this tablet - and got rid of it.
Hope this clarifies why this won't work for you.
As far as how to find your recovery partition, look in /dev/block. You may or may not have a mtd folder. It might be an emmc folder or something else. The partitions may or may not be labeled with easy to read names. I would look at other tablets with atom processors and see what the partition layouts typically look like to get an idea.
