I'm doing a walkthrough of the steps I'd take in case of disaster and haven't been able to open my encrypted disk image backup using the OS X installation disk and disk utility. Non encrypted sparse images open fine, but not encrypted.

I may be missing something. I'd appreciate any advice or comments you guys might have.

The error I'm receiving is:

Unable to attach "Disk Image Name". (internal error)


Thanks!

Encrypted disk images are not supported by the installation disc. You'd need to install a basic OSX installation to a bootable volume (e.g. a flash drive or something similar) to access the image.
