[xubuntu-users] can't install an encrypted home folder

Hi all.

I have been trying to create an xububtu 16.04 encrypted home folder on 
my laptop. I've done it on other machines and never had an issue.

During the install, all goes normally, I check the box to encrypt the 
home folder during the install. However, when the install is completed, 
there is no separate boot partition and the display in gparted shows a 
normal unencrypted install. My laptop was out on loan to a family member 
for the last 1.5 years, so it's possible my family member might have 
made bios changes to make windows run--yes, my family member user windows.

Are there any bios settings that can prevent xubuntu from creating an 
encrypted home folder during the installation of 16.04?
