I have such boot sequence: system boots from external disk, right after start it asks about password for LVM encrypted partition (which holds /root and /home), I enter it, the partitions are mounted, boot continues, everybody happy.
This was openSUSE 11.4. I upgraded to 13.2 and now the boot loader (grub) does not ask about any password, it believes that LVM mount point is regular, accessible partition, and after some delay it simply states this partition is not present (
I kept backup of old
/boot and I compared device map of grub, and menu list, both version (previous, from OS 11.4) and current looks the same (actually analogous, because now grub has current and previous menu entries).
So how to make grub to ask me about the password, as before?
Update Using the info provided in the thread about boot loaders -- https://askubuntu.com/questions/107440/how-to-check-what-bootloader-my-system-is-using -- I have GRUB version 0.97 in my boot partition used.
