I have 2 macbook Pro Retina machines, Identical. One for work and a personal one.


Disk encryption is on for both machines.


My work machine just logs me in no problem.


My personal machine asks me for a disk encryption password every boot, then the login password. I can't find the setting to turn off the disk encryption password prompt.


What did i do differently?

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    So I solved it for myself.


    seems I had encrypted the disk using DU from the pre-boot environment, therefore the encryption had occured without my user account holding the "keys" to the encryption. The end result is that a password is needed for both my account and the encryption seperately.


    I turned off file vault as root from the command line and re-enabled it as my user. problem solved.
