During boot, the OS would request my password to decrypt my disk but wouldn't detect my input. I tried following this solution: Cannot enter password to start Ubuntu

The solution essentially has you update boot parameters in /etc/default/grub and change splash to nosplash. After that you can run update-grub.

This did solve the issues but it creates a more extreme problem. Once I log in everything is super laggy (e.g. if I type a letter, it takes 10 seconds for the letter to appear).

  1. Why is this happening?

  2. What can I do to get around this?

  3. Before I knew this was the cause, I tried solving this by installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu. Interestingly, unless I selected the following install options I would run into the same problem: enter image description here

Why in the world would leaving Encrypt... and/or Use LVM unchecked cause major lag?
