"directory is encrypted" GRUB error after Slot 0 is unlocked

I have a mostly encrypted SATA3 SSD (with 8MB unformatted partition for BIOS support) with GPT. It unlocks and boots just fine, when plugged into a SATA port on the motherboard.

But when plugged in through a USB3.0 to SATA cable, GRUB successfully unlocks Slot 0, but says that /boot is still encrypted, even though everything else is accessible.

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

Which bits specifically ???

Both are mutually exclusive:



  1. Please read this:

    Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies… :grin:
  2. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information for us to be able to help you. (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
    Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.
