Need help with cryptsetup

Im using parrot os for school and wanted to install it on bare metal, so I attempted, but it came across an error and need help getting past it. I tried searching google and reddit and didn’t find anything that helped. I appreciate it. Basic run down, fresh install of latest parrot os home edition, 4gb unencrypted ext4 /boot, 8gb swap, and 500gb for ext4 with the encrypt box ticked, a typical installation within the parrot gui installer. I shut down after install, restart always hangs up, fresh start, as soon as it gets to where i should enter my password for the encryption, i get the error below.

cryptsetup: ERROR: luks-067baafeb-3d1d-4979-a524-01c1f6b13c3f: cryptsetup failed, bad password or options?

ALERT /dev/mapper/luks-067baafeb-3d1d-4979-a524-01c1f6b13c3f does not exist. drop to shell

Try installing unencrypted to see if the installer works at all to begin with.
