I installed Manjaro on my 2011 MBP and the OS was able to open but after installation it recommended that I restart my computer. I did and now it opens me up to a black window that quotes as follows:
Attempting to decrypt mast key…
Enter passphrase for hd1,gpt2 (384543bbdfe64f728a3ef6cbcdb094d3):
I put in the password thinking it was the login password but it gives me errors and goes into rescue mode, grub rescue.
If y’all can help me where I might have done something wrong please I’d appreciate it!
When you installed Manjaro, did you select the option to fully encrypt your drive? If yes, then you must have put in a password that is separate from the password you have selected to login to your Manjaro.
I did but I checked the textbox to keep it the same. I’m thinking about reinstalling without encryption.
Since MacBooks can be a bit… unique in their responses, installing without full drive encryption would work better. If you still want to add encryption, you can then install VeraCrypt (VeraCrypt - Free Open source disk encryption with strong security for the Paranoid) and use it to create a container to store your sensitive files.
Thank you for everything! I reinstalled it without encryption and got everything going no problem! Wifi works and now I can mess around with it. I’ll probably look at what I should do after installing it.
That is awesome! For anything you might need, shoot a new topic here and tag me with my username (@vasileios)
