    Yes, I didn't take into account that the first prompt happens before the keyboard is set, so I mistyped the password.

    Thanks a lot for your efforts everyone!

    I guess this means that /boot is encrypted as well? Maybe I should reinstall and put that on another (unencrypted) partition so I don't get asked twice for the password?

    I was wondering if that might be the problem.

    Yes, it is.

    I advise against that. If you are using "btrfs" it is better to have "/boot" part of the root partition. That way, if you roll back to an earlier snapshot, the boot menu and kernels will be appropriately rolled back.

    Check the wiki entry SDB:Encrypted root file system. There's a section on how to avoid having to enter the password twice.
