Dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04 with Ubuntu encrypted
- Resize for some free space
- Create an ext4 400MB /boot on the free space
(It will become /dev/nvme0n1p5 in my case)
- Create an ext4 partition on the remaining space
(It will become /dev/nvme0n1p6 in my case)
sudo cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/nvme0n1p6
- type YES and then enter passphrase twice for encryption
sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/nvme0n1p6 encrypted
- "encrypted" is just the label. You can choose whatever you like.
sudo pvcreate /dev/mapper/encrypted sudo vgcreate vg /dev/mapper/encrypted
- "vg" is the "volume group" label. You can choose whatever you like.
- Create a 3GB swap volume, and use the rest to create the root volume.
(Yet I don't want swap for myself...)
sudo lvcreate -L 3G -n swap vg sudo lvcreate -n root -l 100%FREE vg
Run "Install Ubuntu" on the desktop
- Choose "Something else" on the "Installation type" page, and "Continue"
- Double click the boot partition created above (/dev/nvme0n1p5), use as ext4, mount as /boot, mark as "format"
- Double click /dev/mapper/vg-root/. Use as "ext4" and mount as "/", mark as "format"
- Double click the /dev/mapper/vg-swap/. Use as "swap area"
- Choose the /dev/nvme0n1 as the "device for bootloader"
- "Install Now", and finish the rest of the steps. DO NOT REBOOT!
sudo mkdir /mnt/root sudo mount /dev/mapper/vg-root /mnt/root sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p5 /mnt/root/boot sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/root/dev sudo mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/root/dev/pts sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/root/proc sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/root/sys sudo mount --bind /run /mnt/root/run sudo chroot /mnt/root mount /boot/efi
- Find the UUID of the partition where "encrypted" (/dev/nvme0n1p6) is located.
NOT the /dev/mapper/encrypted one!
- Put this line and replace the UUID with yours
encrypted UUID=MY_UUID none luks
Save the file.
update-grub grub-install /dev/nvme0n1 update-initramfs -u -k all
Exit the chroot. Reboot.
