    I have modified a kext and the OS does not start. Even with Command + S. So I have to restore the original backup.

    When I insert the Leopard DVD and Start Terminal from Utilities menu, and try to mount the drive, it says: Unknown special file or file system.

    How do I mount the volume so I can replace the original kext ?

    Did you have Time Machine enabled?

    if so, why not just restore from that?

    Is the Boot DVD not seeing your HD?

    I dont use Time Machine.

    The DVD shows the HD at installation and at the mount command.


    All I need to do is access the HD via Terminal and replace the kext file and I'm done!

    When I try to mount the drive, it says: Unknown special file or file system.

    How do I mount the drive ?
