Is there a way to install TrueOS with encrypted geli usign EFI?


#1

I bought HP Envy 13-d004no couple weeks ago. First I installed FreeBSD in to it but there was so many problems that I decide to install and test TrueOS instead.

When I started install, I found that disk encryption was greyed out. After googling a while, I found that there’s a bug and disk encryption do not work with EFI.

But with FreeBSD I had encrypted disk, so is it possible to install TrueOS like that?

I’m using TrueOS-Desktop-17.12-x64-USB installation media.

On FreeBSD-12.0-CURRENT UEFI/GELI/encryption is broke. The patch is working it’s way through their testing.


#3

Do you know timetable when new installation media is released? Is there any benefits if use UEFI instead of legacy bios with TrueOS?


#4

From what I gather. Last week, testing was done, and approved to back into 12.0, as the when that happens, no idea


#5

I’ve got an HP 15 I wanted to put it on, of course one would want Geli full disk encryption…

Any chance there’s an unstable with this working ?

Sorry I don’t know where to look to find out.

Thanks
