    TrueCrypt with dual boot (Kali 2.0 & Windows 10)

    Is there anyone who has got dual boot with grub2 and tried to encrypt the entire HDD with TrueCrypt and of course can write me how to do it? I read that there are some problems to do that because of grub boot loader. I found some howto's but they are not up to date and I just don't wanna mess up sth because it took me a long time to configurate everything.

    I have dual boot (only kali is encrypted through). I had to leave /boot out of the encryption (which makes sense). / and the swap are encrypted though.
    chown -R us ./base

    I certainly did.

    I wrote a guide on this a long while ago. It's not the easiest to follow thing I've written but you will have Windows 10 + encrypted Kali booting at the end (works for EFI, should work for non-EFI too)

    Thanks for the link, now im trying to move my boot to another partition and then i will try to encrypt both OS. Of course i have some problems - grub-install throws errors after moving boot to new partition and adding new data to fstab. I must find out what is wrong.
