I am installing Debian wheezy on some laptops. I have one large partition of about 750GB and a 4GB swap partition. I enabled encryption on both partitions and am now in the midst of the encryption process.
The installation is at the
Erasing data on SCSI3 (0,0,0), partition #1 (sda) step, and has been for the last 18 hours. The progress bar is only at the 50% point.
Why does this step so long?
Is there anything I can do to speed up this process? (I have to do this with other laptops.)
