    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?

    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:

    Code:
    /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.

    Here is the partition table, where are disk0s3 and disk0s4 :confused:

    Code:
    /dev/disk0
       #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
       0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *120.0 GB   disk0
       1:                        EFI                         209.7 MB   disk0s1
       2:                  Apple_HFS Macintosh SSD           119.2 GB   disk0s2
       3:                 Apple_Boot                         650.0 MB   disk0s5
