View Full Version : [ubuntu] Full disk encryption on external disk

October 4th, 2008, 12:29 PM
I tried to install ubuntu 8.041 with full disk encryption to a usb external disk following the exact same procedure that I followed when I made the installation to my internal disk.

Unfortunately, though no error messages are shown, just after ubuntu initial screen is shown I just see the following:

“Busybox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5 5ubuntu 12) Built-in Shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built in commands


minus the quotes of course :)

I also don’t get any password promt.

I made the installation thrice with the same cd that I used for installing ubuntu on my laptop (so it’s not a cd problem). I use the alternate cd.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Thank you :)
