View Full Version : [all variants] lvm luks - cannot boot after restoring backup

January 22nd, 2012, 05:11 PM
i have restored my system backup like i always did. restored onto luks encrypted lvm.
lnstalled grub, recreated initrd
but the boot fails with ALERT /dev/mapper/vg1-root doesnt exist
i can see dmcrypt module is not loaded. also during update-initramfs dmcrypt hook was executed after lvm. looks like it 1st tries to load lvm but should crypt instead!
any ideas?
