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/sda7- root (now encrypted with LUKS)
I only modified sda7, and I haven't modified my
/etc/grub.d/ files because I didn't know what to put in them. This is what I need help with!
UUID=211bd0c8-… / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
(221bd0c8-… being the UUID of the unlocked sda7)
/etc/crypttab contains an entry for the swap partition (sda8) but nothing for the encrypted sda7 (UUID=8fa9b089-…)
linux /vmlinuz-4.15.0-36-generic root=UUID=221bd0c8-… ro quiet splash $vt_handoff initrd /initrd.img-4.15.0-36-generic
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)
