    Can someone tell me what the heck this is?

    I burnt lion to disc, restarted and went into disc utility

    I end up doing a 3 pass secure erase but for some reason in the left hand corner it still says "Disk 2: Mac OSX Base System????"

    Is this part of my hard drive. Is it some un-eraseable partition? I'm confused. It's not causing any technical problems I'm just curious what it is.

    Just ignore it. It will go away once you install Lion.
