    You don't encrypt drives you encrypt partition on the drive. Don't let MS calling partitions drives confuse you.

    As a general rule you need to think about an do this before installing things.

    Some apps will encrypt an entire drive, in those cases you are prompted for credentials on boot approx the same time the BIOS is loaded (and before the normal bootloader starts).

    In those cases, it doesn't matter what OS or file systems might exist on the disk, the drive is fully encrypted.

    I don't know of any FOSS solutions other than what you've listed.
    On the other hand, I haven't investigated for many years... Maybe someone has created a FOSS project based on TPM like MS Windows Bitlocker. You can try going down this Wikipedia list... I recommend you trim the list down to only projects with relatively recent modifications/submissions

    I am currently using an encrypted LVM. There is a smallish unencrypted "/boot", and everything else for Leap is in the encrypted LVM.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    yes but what the OP wants is to have one encryption for both Windows and Linux. To encrypt the full drive you would need a program that runs before any boot and sits between the BIOS any OS and the hardware. This at the very lest would interfere with normal booting.

    For Linux I'd set up a boot partition and use an encrypted LVM. But that would not work putting windows in the LVM I think You could just run Windows in a VM with Linux as the host inside a encrypted LVM

    Actually, with Truecrypt, you could do full device encryption - not just
    partition encryption.

    I have two drives that are configured just that way.

    I believe TrueCrypt is no longer available, or at least no longer being developed.
