I like to install windows7 with dual boot. I have a linux on my disk with full luks/dm encryption. My question is, can i install windows in this encrypted disk? i can shrink 50-100gb and like keep linux and all. It is possible?

  • Consider another approach: Install Windows in a virtual machine with Linux as host. Then all your files are encrypted. VirtualBox is easy to use. – hschou Jun 21 '17 at 8:21
  • I know virtualbox, but this case is not good for me. i dont like to virtualise. – diknoroyda Jun 21 '17 at 8:45

Windows does not support LUKS containers and booting from it natively. You can use LibreCrypt to access such containers, but i don't think it is possible to install and use windows entirely from LUKS container.
