First stage of installation completed. Reboot the system

If everything went as expected. the image below is what you’ll see when the system comes back up. This is the advantage of encrypting a hard disk. Without the encryption key specified earlier in the installation process, no one, including yourself, will be able to boot into the computer.

Startup screen. Encryption password must be correct to unlock the system

If you successfully booted into the computer, the next step is to specify a password for the root account, and to create a regular user. It is highly recommended that the password for the root and regular user not be the same as the encryption key used to encrypt the disk. Click Next to register your new system (optional).

    Oh, thanks for mentioning that. That´s a shame! PCLOS is very polished, but they missed that one.

    Which KDE-Distro would You recommend? Mandriva, Kubuntu, OpenSUSE, MintKDE? I would prefer an encrypted installation. I think this is possible via the alternative installer of Kubuntu.

    Chakra isn´t stable yet, setting up Arch is too much fiddling around for me.

    Thank You very much for this How-To! A couple of days ago I failed doing this. I went with an installation of PCLOS, as it is based on Mandriva, yet features all codecs preinstalled. Plus both run relatively fast for using KDE4 as their DE.
