Re: Won't boot if /, home, swap are encrypted

Definitely, I did not encrypt the /boot. Only the swap, home and root are encrypted.

I should have mentioned also that I have an EFI System Partition instead of /boot, as it makes me create it. If I have /boot instead, it doesn't let me go on and makes me create a EFI. But it boots fine, as long as the home, root, and swap are not encrypted.

 Did you
 remember to make an unencrypted /boot partition? The
 installer does not support encrypted
 /boot partition, you will need to
 leave it
 For example,
 see my current partition table:
 NAME                  MAJ:MIN
                8:0    0 465.8G  0 disk
 ├─sda1                  8:1    0
 953.7M  0 part  /boot
             8:2    0     1K  0 part
 └─sda5                  8:5    0
 464.8G  0 part
   254:0    0 464.8G  0 crypt
 ├─root--swap-root 254:1    0   447G  0 lvm   /
     └─root--swap-swap 254:2    0 
 17.8G  0 lvm   [SWAP]
          8:16   0 931.5G  0 disk
 └─sdb1                  8:17   0
 931.5G  0 part
   254:3    0 931.5G  0 crypt
 └─home-home       254:4    0 931.5G  0 lvm  
 /boot is its own
 unencrypted partition, root and swap are in a LUKS
 encryption, and /home is on its own hard disk
 (and also LUKS encrypted)
