It will ask you for your login password, this is so that when you login, everything is automatically decrypted by using a passphrase that is wrapped with your login.

ssh-keygen is the easiest method and openssl can be used to manually remove the key and output it to a new file, which you can then copy back over top of the encrypted file.
After that your public key authentication will work without any password prompt because it is no longer encrypted. Make sure you understand........
1.) Replicate the number of partitions in your new drives.
I created 3 partitions of the same same size.
partition #1: +1G (/boot)
partition #2: +60G (swap)
partition #3: rest of it (/)
#note if you are using GPT/gdisk you need to create separate a partition at least 1MB in size (in my case I would a 4th partition and mark it type ef02).........
