keyboard woes with an encrypted disk

During today's installfest we had a system with keyboard issues. The specific details were this: An ASUS laptop E200H, ubuntu 17.04 with gnome, and an encrypted hard drive. The system booted up to the screen where it requests the disk encryption password. At this point in time, the system did not allow the use of the laptop's keyboard. It did however recognize an internal USB keyboard.

Woes installing Lubuntu on a Inspiron 3452

This note describes how to overcome an installation problem we had in today's installfest. The system would not boot from the hard disk, and when trying to boot from a USB stick, we received a message saying: alloc magic is broken at 0xxxxxx.

What finally worked was this: In the BIOS setup, select UEFI boot and enable secure boot!.

Then boot into the USB grub menu.
