PC hangs after I give the password to a system volume

I am talking about system encrypted partition.

I use TrueCrypt which fails because it needs more conventional memory (BIOS require too much memory).
So, I jump to VeraCrypt but it hangs immediately after give the password correct or not.
It is the same reason?

Hi,

Are you sure you waited enough for the password to be validated?
In VeraCrypt it takes much more time than TrueCrypt because of the extra security and many users have falsely reported a hang whereas it only needed several minutes on their machines.

What CPU are you using? Did you choose SHA256 or RIPEMD-160? With these information, I can estimate the boot time needed for your machine.

An additional note: you will find several discussions on this forums about the long boot time and the enhancement that are planned in the future to reduce it.
