I'll watch the video, but I was not planing to use LVM and my problem is
related to non-LVM partition encyrption.

And that does not work as I tried to describe.  After I have properly
configured encrypted root partition (mount point is /) and then write the
partition to disk, the mount point has disappeared and I get the error
message "No root file system defined".  When I have more time, I'll send
detailed email about the steps.
