Hi guys.

I've have a guest and that guest differs from all other 
guest by:

     <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-rhel9.0.0'>hvm</type>
     <loader readonly='yes' secure='yes' 
     <boot dev='hd'/>
     <bootmenu enable='yes'/>

whereas everything else has:

     <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-rhel9.0.0'>hvm</type>
     <boot dev='hd'/>
     <boot dev='cdrom'/>
     <bootmenu enable='yes'/>

Now, that different guest fails - as the only one - to 
start, to boot after its qcow2 image was luks-encrypted.
Guest starts but says that:

BdsDxe: failed to load Boot0001 "Uefi Misc Device" from 
PciRoot (0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x3)/Pci(0x0,0x0): Not found

revert back to original, non-encrypted qcow2 image and all 
works a ok.

All and any thoughts shared are much appreciated.
many thanks, L.
