Error creating Encrypted SSD / Migrating

This issue should’ve been fixed by these changes:

Your log looks like it is waiting for you to enter the luks passphrase but the passphrase prompt is shown on your blank display (so you cannot see it).

Thank you for testing! I don’t know the reason yet, but can you try entering your decryption password after a while of waiting at the black screen? I had this once when testing (yesterday I think) and the display then came on a bit after entering the password. It could be that the brightness is initially 0, for example.

Indeed, it works if I enter the passphrase with the black screen, thanks! :slight_smile: But it also shows the password prompt during the boot after migration as expected, any ideas why?

Also, how could I switch the display on before the disk is decrypted?

Yes, same here. My the device is shut down, there is no prompt and just a black screen. Typing the password works.
When I just reboot the prompt shows.

But I can now use my nvme, which is fine :slight_smile:
