Oh fudge, I get it - you are trying to open a shell *without* booting into the GUI installer...
Argh - I always boot GUI installer, then right-click and open a terminal session, and do what you need to do... But if you are in a console session, I don't know how to open *another* session...
Maybe you could just shove in a framebuffer, do what you need to do via the installer boot image, than power down, remove the framebuffer and go from there?
Just a thought...
