Encrypted System - Dropping To Grub Shell with Incorrect Passphrase

Hello all,

I am running Hefftor Linux on encrypted partitions (/root; swap, /home)

In case I mistype the passphrase, I do not get another chance at entering the passphrase but the system drops me to the Grub shell. Not very helpful, only a reboot helps.

Able Archer suggested that the partitioning setup might cause the issue. Frankly, I had problems setting up an encrypted system with the Calamares installer. I wouldn’t let me configure an encrypted LVM, so I had the partitions encrypted.

Here is my /etc/fstab

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may
# be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if
# disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system>             <mount point>  <type>  <options>  <dump>  <pass>
UUID=EEED-A489                            /boot/efi      vfat    umask=0077 0 2

Maybe someone has an idea, what went wrong in the partitioning and encrypting step

Many thanks in advance
