What is the output from `cat /proc/partitions` ?
What is the purpose of '-O none' and is that really valid? It is not
documented (did you mean '-o defaults'?). Could you try without it?
'mount' also has a '-v' option which might give further clues, or you
could look in `dmesg` for anything related.
Finally, you could try manually running `kldload ext2fs` to make sure
the module is loaded first.
