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

Hi Roberto,

It was telling me that it was not finding anything to boot from. But I'm good now, I got it to boot and sent a message to the list a little while ago. Though I'm not sure why did it now but didn't do it earlier, after I tried a dozen different times...

It will be much easier to help you if you could post the complete output
of the boot sequence up to the failure.  If that is not possible, then
perhaps the last screenful or last few lines.  Or even a photograph of
the screen showing where the boot sequence is stuck.
