View Full Version : [other] No GRUB with LUKS encryption.

December 7th, 2009, 02:39 AM

I recently formatted and re-installed and added LUKS encryption all my drive partitions (apart from boot), however, I am now unable to boot to GRUB.

On reboot I am presented with a black screen and just a blinking cursor in the top left corner, I've had this error before which I could easily solve by re-installing the GRUB, but this is not working.

I am able to boot the computer by using a USB stick and editing the GRUB as such to boot off my HD.

Any ideas with this, please?
It's been like it for over a week now.
