Can't boot anymore

Topics: Technical Issues

after having updated to version 1.13 yesterday, I'm unable to boot now. A few months ago I encrypted my whole system (Windows 7, 32 bit, on a laptop that is about three years old). Yesterday I updated Veracrypt to the most recent version, and the first reboot was fine. Today I had a closer look at the settings and options available in the menu, and in the default mount parameters I chose that hash algorythm I deemed to be the one of my system drive. Now I'm unable to boot.

Has anybody a good idea? Are there perhaps any useful command line parameters to be entered in the password dialoque? (Note that I can't see any error message as I've made use of the possibility to show nothing but a custom text in the password dialogue.)

Many Thanks in advance!

Have now found out the reason: The new password dialogue’s additionally asking for a “PIM” (whatever this is). As I had checked the option of having nothing shown but a custom text, I could’t see that. Rescue disk helped.
