    Lightbulb How to unmount specified partition on boot

    Hello,

    I've an encrypted partition which Ubuntu can't recognize it by default so I want to make it unavailable on boot.

    How to unmount specified partition on boot?

    PS
    I tried this from Ubuntu but it didn't work.

    Code:
    sudo umount /dev/sdaX

    Would you mind posting the contents of /etc/fstab? I think it's just a matter of removing that partitions entry from fstab (or just commenting it out in case you want to access it later).

    Commenting mount line in fstab fixed the issue.

    Thanks
