I used the AWS import service to import a large (2TB) drive, and they dropped two .bin files in my S3 account. Their instructions say to stripe together to EBS volumes to make a drive large enough to hold the image and then to just use that.
Well I've got everything striped and whatnot, but I don't know what to do with this .bin image. Doesn't seem to work with
mount, or at least, not without any options, and I don't know what options to put.
>file -k image-NPX7P-0000.bin image-NPX7P-0000.bin: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0xb, starthead 1, startsector 63, 3907024821 sectors, extended partition table (last)\011, code offset 0x0 >file -k image-NPX7P-0001.bin image-NPX7P-0001.bin: data
EDIT: I appended the file info, and from the looks of it, I'd assume the reason I can't mount just 0000 is because 0001 is an extension of it (which tracks with how I assume they did this). But how would I merge the two and mount that?
EDIT2: Using osgx's answer, I was able to get the two bin files catted together, and used kpartx to read the partition table.

This still will not mount however. It says it requires a filesystem type, and nothing I've used helps. Also posted to a pastebin because it's long is my kernal config of the relevant (maybe) values:
