No such cryptodisk found with second passphrase

Hi there,

I have a fresh full encrypted installation. Works fine.

I set up an alternate encryption password with

sudo cryptsetup luksAddKey /dev/sda2 -S 2 -i=10
# new passphrase...
sudo mkinitcpio -p linux

After a reboot the old passphrase still works, but the new one results in a grub rescue shell with “no such cryptodisk found” error. Did I miss to change sth. else?

Thanks for any hint!


At this stage GRUB only interprets en_US format. Did you choose a passphrase under a different locale?

Oh holy…

I omitted special characters but I used “y” which swaps with “z” on german keyboard layout…

It now works - thanks!!!
