More details of exactly what you did would help. That is. Did you use
LVM or Primary/Logical partitioning? Which partitions did you encrypt?
You didn't encrypt /boot did you?  Did you let the installer handle the
partitioning and encryption or did you set up encryption after the OS
installation.  Etc.
