Question

What can cause the message: "Integrity check for data area failed. System halted" before the PBA is shown?

Answer

This message is shown when the "FIPS mode" feature is installed and the system kernel has been modified (accidentialy or on purpose) or is corrupted
(e.g. This prevents the boot of the machine after a potential attack to the kernel area).

Solution:

- Restore a valid kernel backup.

Not a solution:

- Start an emergency uninstallation, the decryption will not start in this case.
