6. After installation, the window is showing again the Language
selection (reason also described in 2.). After a reboot
without installation stick, grub requests a passwort => ok,
after trail and error, I find out it is the same as used for the
encryption key - and additional replacement from German keys
with the English ones works. Same issue for sure in the
partition encryption password field (sometimes this translation
is no more so easy for me, so the last use of an English keyboard
was for more than 40 years).

grub has no support for non-us keyboards. Hack your own grub as needed:

The main thing, what I would say - I need no grub password - and don't
enabled it. It was enabled like described without any selection :-/


After booting, the same behavior, Language and Formating was well
switched but keyboard was still the English one. This can easily

There is no QA for non-us locales:

No deal - normally I don't need any grub protection, so with a booteable
stick this can be overruled. Anyway on grub I would use an keyboard
independent password.

Main issue is the missing copy of the keyboard selection to the
installation!

Ulf
