We have a laptop that won't boot up correctly, however, we're able to get it into target disk mode.

I did a diskutil list and I saw there was an [external] disk (which listed a single AFPS partition , as well as a synthesized disk (which listed the partitions I expected.

I did a:

dd if=/dev/rdisk3 of=/PATH bs=1m

which outputted a 500GB image, as expected.

However, I can't seem to mount this disk image after in Finder, as it says it's recognised.

Is there a special trick to dd-ing a AFPS disk? Or some trick to mounting it?

(The disk was encrypted, but I do know the password - a password prompt does come up, but it won't let me click in the password box).
