    I'll add:

    My own 42.1 system is setup similarly to what malcolmlewis is suggesting -- with a separate "/boot" outside the LVM. That way, I only have to enter the encryption key once.

    I do have Tumbleweed setup the way that you are using it. And, when I first tried that, I ran into the problems that you describe (or worse). But I reported a bug, and worked with the opensuse team to fix that bug in Tumbleweed, which now works as it should. But they forgot to put that bug fix into the released 42.1.

    Code:

    NAME                                         MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE  MOUNTPOINT
    sda                                            8:0    0 298.1G  0 disk
    ├─sda1                                         8:1    0   260M  0 part  /boot/efi
    ├─sda2                                         8:2    0   128M  0 part
    ├─sda3                                         8:3    0   500M  0 part  /boot
    ├─sda4                                         8:4    0   200G  0 part
    │ └─cr_ata-TOSHIBA_MK3275GSX_91Q7B2OZB-part4 254:0    0   200G  0 crypt
    │   ├─secure-swap                            254:1    0     8G  0 lvm   [SWAP]
    │   ├─secure-leap                            254:2    0    40G  0 lvm   /
    │   └─secure-data                            254:3    0   100G  0 lvm   /data
    └─sda5                                         8:5    0  97.2G  0 part
    This worked like a charm thank you so much.

    I have never tried getting into BIOS on a mac, let me see if I find something about that.

    I am able to boot now with the other option of having boot outside of LVM, so I will update now and then check.

    I do not think Mac supports secure boot at all.

    Thanks for your help and clarification. I would also like to try Tumbleweed and am happy to hear that most likely I might not hit this issue there.
