I recently bought a Ubuntu Edition Dell XPS 13 9370. The machine comes without full disk encryption enabled out of the box, but offers to create a recovery USB drive, when booted from that Ubuntu can be installed with LUKS encryption.
However, after installing my passphrase is never recognized, I always get "cryptsetup failed, bad password or options?"
- The culprit can't be keyboard layouts, the passphrase
abcddoes not work either.
- The encryption itself seems to be configured correctly – when I boot from the live USB system and launch the "Disks" utility I can successfully unlock the drive with my chosen password (again, I tried
abcd, so it can't be a layout problem)
Did anybody else see this problem? Any suggestions how to fix it? Thanks!
