I have searched a lot.
The manual partitioning in the Ubuntu install is so confusing to me. I am new to Linux.
I come from a Truecrypt-full-disk-encrypted Windows installation and I boot from CD every time, which uses the bootloader on CD.
I understand that when I install Ubuntu I can encrypt the installation hard drive, but I can choose to install bootloader and kernel (and leave them unencrypted) on a USB flash drive for maximum security.
I just can't figure out all the options. LVM volume, encrypted volume... I am so confused.
Is my scenario possible and is there already a guide out there to achieve it?
I tried manual partitioning and choosing USB flash drive partition as "mounts in /boot" But it never boots when I try to boot from that USB. I am doing something wrong.
Thank you so much, Bert
