Yes, I had thinking of Geli, but my system is up and running and I don't
know if I can use geli for this without breaking all
I have used geli for unused disks and for swap but not for root, because i
dont know if I will break all....

can I use it for root, when it is a live system?

Of course i don't think in methods like BIOS because simply taking the
battery out can reset all.
