After erasing the startup volume with encryption enabled (FileVault 2) and restoring the previous backup, I found myself needing to type passwords twice: the first one is to unlock the drive and the second is to log in the system.

Is there a way to save one typing of the passwords? Automatic log-in?

You may have to modify your keychain, associating the FileVault with the new user account. – user3463 Aug 6 '12 at 7:20

In my case, parallels desktop was causing the issue (not kidding, see this post enter link description here). I uninstalled it and used Virtualbox instead…
