Luks aes256 issue at install encrypted partition not recognized

so i’ve followed this guide Custom Installation | Qubes OS
(as i have done before and had no issue)
only now i’m back at the setup at stage 7 but my unknown partitions don’t show as encrypted
only as unknown (nvme0n1p1 and p2) one of 1g for swap and another with 400gb for everything else the lvm’s
partition 2 should be encrypted and it is in the regards that i can open the consule and everything should work right

but i’m getting no option to decrypt from the setup
(this is my second attempt btw i wiped the disk i made 2 new partitions with fdisk(gpt not that it should matter just giving as much info as possible))

when thinking about it today i did not “activate” format thoes partitions
unlike the first time i installed qubes which i have
so i guess i’ll try everything again but i don’t think this should matter right?

yes that solved it just in case anyone else have fututre issues

at first btw the installer did not accept my password but after googeling and a restart everything was fine -until late on which is the matter of another post
