Oh my... I didn't mention this drive was moved from laptop where as the only drive it was 99% filled up with data. First LVM is mounted automatically at OS startup and has enabled TRIM (I know it's not recommended on encrypted devices as it reveals data organization on disk but OS partition contains only OS, not actual important data), second LVM was mounted ...

By restoring the Volume Header in the repair options it works without the disc. However I didn't manage to boot Windows again so I gave up on the dual boot and switched to ...

However, that doesn't answer the more important question, of how? Guidance on LUKS with scrypt on Linux Mint or Fedora greatly appreciated here.
I fixed it! Here are the commands I used this time: # parted /dev/sda (parted) mklabel msdos (parted) mkpart primary ext2 2MiB 2GiB (parted) mkpart primary ext4 2GiB 100% (parted) set 1 boot on (parted) q # mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda1 # cryptsetup --key-size 512 --hash sha512 --iter-time 5000 --use-random luksFormat /dev/sda2 # cryptsetup open --type luks ...
