Multiboot : Win + Encrypted Home + Encrypted Sec.. problem..

Hi, I had receive a brand new second hand computer.
Erase the disk and fresh install windows on a partition on /sda4. OK.

Create 2 additionals partitions, one for Parrot Home (sda5), another for Parrot Security (sda6).
Then I had install Parrot Sec on sda6. OK. Dual boot OK even if I don’t like to have to type LUKS passphrase before choosing my OS.

Then, I had install Parrot Home on sda5, thinking maybe the grub will handle the multiboot.

But no, at booting I have the choice (after enter luks passphrase of Parrot Home) between Win & Parrot-Home, and now my Parrot-Sec isn’t launchable.

Here’s my BOOT-INFO:

I had spend hours & hours to try achieve correct GRUB setting.
That’s not clear at all !

Is there a way to handle that not too slowly.

By advance, thx mates !


1. Your Parrot information

  • OS version: run cat /etc/*release
    PRETTY_NAME=“Parrot GNU/Linux 4.10”
    NAME=“Parrot GNU/Linux”

  • Kernel version: run uname -a

    • x86_64 GNU/Linux
      ** ISO information **
Version: 4.10
Desktop Environment: Mate
Edition: Home

### 2. If you have this problem after fresh installation:
1. How did you create USB bootable?
    - dd
2. How did you install OS?
    - Debian installer

did you not install grub at last of parrot home installation?

Yes Parrot Home did it.
But did not implement the parrot sec distrib.

Actually, rEFInd (I had install rEFInd but did not detect parrotsec under LUKS either) boot on the parrot home GRUB I think ?
So I have to parameter LUKS management.

I feel things seem complicated for nothing.

have you tried using prober on parrot home?
that could help detect parrot sec.
