[SOLVED] grub error: disk 'lvid/...' not found; Windows 10 + Arch

Hello,

I am trying to install Arch on my new laptop and I encounter some issues regarding grub:
`grub error: disk 'lvid/...<UUID>' not found. Entering rescue mode..`

Setup:
Laptop: Thinkpad T420 with an 256GB SSD
Windows is already installed in LEGACY mode.

What I did:
1. create a new ext4 partition sda3 (windows is sda1 and sda2)
2. follow https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/installation_guide
3. LVM on LUCKS on sda3 (https://www.pavelkogan.com/2014/05/23/l … ncryption/)
4. mkinitcpio.conf hooks: `HOOKS=(base udev autodetect keyboard keymap consolefont modconf block encrypt lvm2 filesystems fsck)`
5. install grub and add LVM + LUCKS specific entries
6. add windows entry to grub (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GR … S/MBR_mode)

--> apparently GRUB can't find (or decrypt?) the partition.

The UUID in /etc/fstab is correct.

What I tried and didn't work:
https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … -not-found
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GR … ue_console

I think I messed up and somehow mixed UEFI/BIOS GPT/MBR but I don't know how/where.

Could you help me?

The output is: https://imgur.com/a/H0nZ7I8

Meanwhile the complete GRUB error:

error: disk 'lvmid/0cI5zT-svlT-CT1n-FKFY-nijs-ulq0-drdsiQ/fBJC3Y-pg7Z-WJGR-Ftb3-DmvE-101q-2UEeUN' not found.

sda1 is the main SSD with sda1 the windows system partition, sda2 the windows partition and sda3 the lvm partition.

sdb will be used as /home extension (using symlinks) once the system is running

sdc is the live-USB

Re: [SOLVED] grub error: disk 'lvid/...' not found; Windows 10 + Arch

Update:
- reapired the windows boot loader  (https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … -mode?rq=1)
- converted windows from legacy mode to UEFI/GPT (https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/window … mbr-to-gpt)
- reinstalled arch
- chose GRUB as boot loader (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GR … not_loaded)
- ... and yet I still encounter this problem.

I really don't understand what's going on.

Hi harlek!n,

sounds like you are running into similar issues as I did a few days back. The guide by pavelkogan isn't up-to-date anymore, you need to specify "--type luks1" when encrypting your disk with cryptsetup luksFormat (see https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=246628).

Hope that helps!

It solved my problem completely!

The only difference was UEFI vs Legacy, but that's described in the wiki

Thank you

still doesnt work for me with only Arch installation and UEFI( but on laptop without UEFI its works fine.
following this manual
also tried different approaches with grub and mkinitcpio configs.
if someone can help i will show any configs that you need for it.
