|0007293||CentOS-7||-OTHER||public||2014-07-03 16:37||2015-12-14 06:59|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||7.2.1511|
|Summary||0007293: Encrypted filesystem in UEFI mode on VirtualBox won't boot|
|Description||When installing CentOS 7 in UEFI mode on VirtualBox using an encrypted filesystem, the installed system stops prior to asking for the volume's passphrase.|
The following combinations do work:
- CentOS 7 in BIOS mode on VirtualBox using an encrypted fs
- CentOS 7 in UEFI mode on VirtualBox not using an encrypted fs
- CentOS 7 in UEFI mode on real hardware using an encrypted fs
It is only the combination of all these three components that causes problems.
|Steps To Reproduce||Create a new virtual machine in VirtualBox, check the "Enable EFI support" checkbox from the Settings > System > Motherboard page, install CentOS7 with the "Encrypt my data" option selected, reboot.|
|Additional Information||This bug has also been confirmed with RHEL7rc1. It is unclear at this time if this is a bug in RHEL/CentOS or VirtualBox. This bug has been reproduced with VirtualBox 4.3.10 and 4.3.12|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|A workaround is to remove the "rhgb quiet" options from the kernel command line.|
|Upstream bug entry: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1116159|
A i think the problem is not so specific.
I tried it in VMWare Worsktation 8 and in my case:
Without 'rhbg' it is OK, with this options the system "stop" after detect disk.
To see detail remove 'quiet' options too.
Create new VM with I/O controler: LSI Logic
(BusLogic is not detected)
Install with using "encrypted filesystem" checkbox.
On reboot the system stops.
Remove 'rhbg' and the ask for password is shown.
I confirm that the same issue appears with VMware Workstation 10 using an encrypted fs in BIOS mode
Removing "rhgb" from the grub2 options allows the dialogue to be displayed.
|Sangala: Did you use BIOS mode or UEFI mode? I don't know about VMware, but I suppose it can be selected from the settings somewhere.|
>> Did you use BIOS mode or UEFI mode?...
I used VM Work. 8 with standard machine definition - it is without UEFI.
(I have never used UEFI in VM Work., but it is possible by manual configuration editing and add: 'firmware = "efi"' - I hope… )
I can test it in VM Work. with UEFI or I can test in KVM.
But I think this trouble doesn't depend on UEFI - it is common trouble "encrypt and rhgb combination" trouble.
The question: Does it work someone without modification GRUB menu when you install with encryption option?
I've tested it on KVM (CentOS 6.5), and the result is:
»System doesn't start after reboot if installation with encrypted filesystem is used.«
I think the severity is minimal „major“ because everybody who install it with encrypted fs and without knowledge this issue doesn't start the system.
Mayby it is for new issue name:
"System doesn't start after reboot if installation with encrypted filesystem is used."
For better analyze I'll attach screenshot.
You can see the (bad) order of the services…
(I hope you understand my English…)
