I recently encrypted my root partition (sda7) with luksipc. It worked well, I can unlock the partition and mount it when running from a live USB, but the OS doesn't load anymore.
My system has 4 relevant partitions:
- /dev/sda1 - EFI
- /dev/sda5 - boot
- /dev/sda7 - root (now encrypted with LUKS)
- /dev/sda8 - swap
I only modified sda7, and I haven't modified my /etc/fstab, /etc/crypttab, and /etc/grub.d/* files because I didn't know what to put in them :D this is what I need help with!
My /etc/fstab contains:
UUID=211bd0c8-… / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 (221bd0c8-… being the UUID of the unlocked sda7)
My /etc/crypttab contains an entry for the swap partition (sda8) but nothing for the encrypted sda7 (UUID=8fa9b089-…)
My /boot/grub/grub.cfg has:
linux /vmlinuz-4.15.0-36-generic root=UUID=221bd0c8-… ro quiet splash $vt_handoff
I'm not sure how this file is generated, but I used to use grub-cutomizer to edit my boot menu before :)
How can I get my laptop back? (without restoring a backup that is)
