All is well.
What do you mean with "now lilo works"? It means that you tried the installation of such encrypted system and it works for you - or something has been changed and now it works?
I am asking because I tried to do everything from the beginning and I found out that at step "Setting up root Linux partition"
I can still see the /dev/sda1 partition in the list. But after this step when I choose /dev/cryptvg/root > Format with ext4 > I get back to the Step "Setting up other Linux partitions"
and here in the list of devices I already cannot see the /dev/sda1.
Ok it looks like there is some problem with that hardware (HP Proliant micro N36L) on the other box it works (I can see /dev/sda1 - maybe hardware bug).
Thanks for your answer
