https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm-crypt/Encrypting_an_entire_system#Configuring_the_boot_loader Please read the Arch wiki section above. Firstly, you will need to add the encrypt and lvm2 hook into mkinitcpio.conf, and then run: mkinitcpio -p linux Secondly, we need to let grub decrypt the disk in advance of the boot process.

if you have live linux in a hard drive and you install anothe OS on anothe r hard disk. For ubuntu just do: #update-grub os prober will properly detect other OS. If you are in gentoo run in terminal: #grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg hopefully other os will be autodetect.
