After upgrade, MacBook stuck in login loop ?


I've upgraded my MacBook to Sierra. But now I can't really login anymore!?

So when I boot I immediately have to enter my password because of FileVault encryption. That works. Then appears the 'growing white line', indicating the boot process. Then there's another login 'situation'. I select my avatar, I enter my password again, MacOS seems to accept it. But then after a while returns to the login screen ... so I'm stuck!? Any ideas?

Thank you!

Found this link in which the writer shows how to safe boot, change root password and reïncarnate the old user.
