Line 148
if [ x$GRUB_ENABLE_CRYPTODISK = xy ]; then
for uuid in `"${grub_probe}" --device $@ --target=cryptodisk_uuid`; do
echo "cryptomount -u $uuid"


  • create luks volumes which are not opened
  • internal partition (LVM inside luks) are not visible
  • host system calls update-initramfs


  • grub-probe returns an empty string, but the loop is going to output an empty uuid.
  • grub.cfg contains: "cryptomount -u"


  • not cryptomount command
  • or a warning that no cryptodisk_uuid was found
