    I’d like to create an encrypted /(root) partition, even without LVM (I don’t necessarily need LVM, do I?) You say, “select Windows boot Manager as device for the boot loader installation and hit on Install Now button.

    My Windows 10 EFI partition is a mere 100 MBs on my machine which seems way too small for kernal updates. Could I/should I create an unencrypted /boot, of 500 MBs or so, before encrypting the /(root) partition or could I/should I increase the size of the Windows EFI partition and name it /boot/efi (or whatever the proper naming path).

    I’m assuming the /boot in your instructions is a part of the /(root) partition and is installed, of course, unencrypted on the /(root) partition along with /home, page file, etc, so it can be found by the boot loader and mounted and also be update with new kernals.

    I suppose almost all hope is lost in creating a UEFI encrypted external portable drive (I did see a complicated set of instruction for creating an external portable Ubuntu UEFI though). I’ve encrypted many machines in various ways over the years: Windows XP or Vista encrypted with TrueCrypt with Ubuntu encrypted native on my computers in dual boot with /boot sometimes installed on a removable USB.

    If I can’t find a suitable solution I’m either going to have encrypt Win.10 with VeraCrypt or say, “bugger Windows” and install Ubuntu as my only and fully encrypted OS on this new computer.

    Grub isn’t showing. You need to cover what to do when you can’t load Windows or Linux.

    I want to configure Ubuntu to have /home on a separate partition. What size do I need to make the partition that will contain the root stuff (i.e mount point /)? I will have a total of 500GiB available space.

    Hey can you extend this guide to installation with encrypted LVM & dualboot?

    Very elaborate. Working perfectly!
