could not boot after enlarge lvm


My box is centos 5.3 x86.
After enlarging hda2's space with "system-config-lvm" as attached picture.

By hard disk is 260G, but lvm gives 64G to hda2, so I enarged hda2's space.

After enlarging, "system-config-lvm" shows "after rebooting the space adjustment will be completed". So I reboot system, and hanged.

Pleease let me know how to boot for backing up data.

It's not much help for you recovering data right now but the graphical LVM utility may not be robust, as discussed in this LQ thread.

Recovery, if possible, will probably require booting an LVM-capable OS (such as Knoppix from DVD) and using LVM's extensive self-repair facilities. Sorry -- I'm not familiar with them so can't give any pointers.

catkin/ Thank you very much for your kind and valuable comment.
According to your comment - require booting an LVM-capable OS, save my box.

I install centos 5.3 on vmware and attached errored hard drive, and fix it.
