twice on my laptop ASUS corei5 I tried to encrypted the whole hd using TE 7.1a after I formatted and reinstalled an OS (Windows7).
All this was done and working (restarting, etc.) perfectly before I started the encryption.
I had run through the steps posted in many websites, and yes, I made it through as per the attached snapshot
When I restarted the laptop for testing purpose TE asked me for the passphrase yes I do remember it, after typed it in blank screen presented (no windows OS)
What could be the culprit ?
