Hi, so I have the usual Macintosh HD(Renamed SSD) and Recovery HD but I discovered today that I have a third, called Mac Os X Installer, If I try to boot from it I get a Kernel Panic.

If I run disk util list from Lion I see the partitions first mentioned, but there is no trace of this Mac Os X Installer partition :confused:

Is it a partition or a volume mounted on your desktop from a disk image?

Nope

did you by any chance do a Bootcamp Partition? It could have somehow messed up.

Can you post a code that you are currently seeing? It would help out somehow.
This is what I see after installing Windows 7 under Lion using Boot Camp Assistant:


/dev/disk0
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0
1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS seong 404.0 GB disk0s2
3: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 95.8 GB disk0s3


This way, we can see what's the size of that drive.

1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS Macintosh SSD 119.2 GB disk0s2
