    I have installed NitoTV and the Smart Installer with the combo update and all the kexts.

    I tried connecting my NTFS drive - fail. Even when I manually tried to mount it.

    I tried an HFS drive and it automounted because I used: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/autodiskmount AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin true

    but my big drive won't work, if I type diskutil diskmount /dev/disk1 it will work fine but I want this to be automated.

    I tried the iClarified guide that creates an entry in StartupItems but I still have no joy.

    Any suggestions, please this is killing me...

    I think you may need to reformat the NTFS drive to HFS.

    It was previously an NTFS disk, now it is HFS...

    What I need to know is:

    How can I run: diskutil mount /dev/disk1 at boot every time...
