The kernel update was successful and dmesg returns the following

fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sde: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

The problem now is when I try to mount /dev/sde1, mount tells me that
special device /dev/sde1 does not exist.

Neither does trying to mount /dev/sg4 or /dev/sg5 works, mount says they are
"not a block device".

What should I be trying next? Thanks!
