Assist installing Manjaro-Architect with full disk encryption

I have on USB Flash drive manjaro-architect-18.0.2-stable-x86_64. I have with no problem installed a simple install on my Acer Aspire R15 laptop. However, I am trying to set up like so.

sda1 – (1Gb /boot – unencrypted)

sda2 – (volume group – primary Id=e8 Linux LVM – remaining space)

– manjarocrypt

– cryptvg – root (80G) encrypted /

– cryptvg – swap (20 G) encrypted swap

– cryptvg – srv (250 G) encrypted for /srv

– cryptvg – home (~580.5G ) encrypted for /home

I have set this up in the install, but I can not boot after install. It never asks for encryption password which I set up. Error is perhaps a grub issue, or any number of other issues. Help to diagnose or reinstall from beginning. There is no personal data on drive, it is clean install.

All the above drives including swap (not including boot) are to be encrypted.

I will need assistance walking through this process step by step, while you help me set this up.

I will provide more details when necessary. And I would be happy to begin work asap.
