Encrypted Pm7 UEFI install on SSD
« on: September 10, 2016, 02:05:28 pm »
For some reason I can't get my system to do a clean (encrypted drive) install. I  have a 128GB SSD and I have my bios set to the default except it has a cms "Windows 8" switch that I switched to "other OS" and I have IOMMU turned on (if not, my USB ports wont work and I can't boot into the install USB).

I hit f12 to get the bios boot menu and boot into the UEFI version of the USB stick. It loads Grub and I choose 'Install Peppermint'.

It will let me choose the language but once it asks if I want to download updates and 3rd party software it "hangs" no matter what I choose and click continue. I can only click 'quit'. This puts me on the live desktop.

I then try again clicking on the install icon in the desktop. This time it gets past the last hang but when I choose to encrypt the disk it gives an error about un-encrypted swap space, it says to use 'swapoff' or create an encrypted swap. I open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo swapoff -aThen try again. This time 'ubi-partman crashed' :  ubi-partman faild with exit code 141

And I can't get beyond that... here is the syslog:

Does disabling secureboot make any difference ?

from the LiveDVD/LiveUSB .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -land
Code: [Select]
sudo parted -l

Seems you're not alone

amongst many others.

Have you tried leaving about 9 - 10GB of unpartitioned space at the end of the SSD for overprovisioning .. you really should be leaving about 7 - 10% on an SSD.

I doubt if that'll solve the problem, but you should be doing it anyway.

Have you tried NOT telling the Ubiquity installer to download updates and third party software during the install
