[SOLVED] LUKS encryption with GRUB

I followed https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm … ion_(GRUB) in creating the BIOS boot partition, EFI partition and the encrypted system partition. Reading the wiki again it seems a BIOS boot partition isn't necessary if I install Arch in UEFI mode. To be honest the disk layout picture gives a wrong idea about partitioning. People think they would need to create both BIOS partition and EFI.

What to do now? Should I delete the BIOS boot partition and resize the EFI to get 1MiB back? The other way: let it be? If later I do a custom Secure Boot, would the BIOS partition be a hindrance?

Up to you, it shouldn't hinder anything and be generally irrelevant.
