Ubuntu cryptsetup won't accept password after normal reboot

Hi all,

 

Strange thing happened for me two days ago. I just wanted to reboot my VM and now I'm no longer able to boot.

My system is running with a full encryption with cryptsetup. I'm using a passphrase to unlock my partition. So far so good. But now it doesn’t work anymore... I'm not sure what I did before, but what I know, I didn't change anything! about cryptsetup.

 

OS version : ubuntu 13.10 i386

kernel version : 3.11.0-13-generic

 

I try with qwerty and azerty keyboard but it doesn't work

 

I always get the error message: unlock failed, bad password or options? (on boot)

Command failed: No key available with this passphrase (live cd)

 

Only thing I can imagine is that I’m using the wrong keyboard layout, but how could I check that? I never saw my input in the boot progress.

 

I appreciate any help! ;
