My laptop running manjaro on an encrypted disk was freezing during some installation or software removal process related to android fastbooting. I suppose I was stupidly running a terminal and a software manager process at the same time, accidental. I waited for some time and, when still unchanged, forced shutdown.
Now, when booting and entering the passphrase, this shows up:
error: access denied.
error: no such cryptodisk found.
error: disk 'cryptouuid/...' not found .
Entering rescue mode...
I use manjaro and encryption without greater knowledge of either, so I would like to get your suggestions on if there are any options I could try to access my encrypted disk, which I, spoiler, didn’t backup.
As far as I understood it could be a corrupted luks header, in which case I cannot do anything.
Or it could be that there is something wrong with GRUB.
Here I read that it’s possible to reinstall grub:
I am unfamiliar with the process and do not have my original installation medium at hand.
Is there a way of reinstalling GRUB without one?
Any (other) steps which you recommend?
Two more info:
I unfortunately do not know my systems information by heart, saw this:
but couldn’t get into grub.
And I am completely sure of the passphrase and triple checked the keyboard was on correct layout.
Appreciate your support!
