Hello,
Can I uninstall veracrypt after I ncrypted my entire drive? From what I gathered the encryption happens during boot phase and therefore shouldnt be affected if verycrypt is uninstalled, right?

You are right, but veracrypt won't let you do that (it will tell you to decrypt first). Maybe the boot loader is needed only to load windows kernel (or whatever) and later passes the decryption to the veracrypt.sys driver.
