Did you take out a HDD and put another one?

Did you had a partition mounted on that drive?

Seems that you take out a partition within files of the operative system.

I think the best way to make your system works is reinstalling the operative system.

Did you got information you want to recover from the disk drive??
What you can do is to install the system in a separate partition, and mount the old disk drives to extract the information.

There are several tools for dealing with LVM volumes.

pvs - find volume group
lvdisplay - find volume name
vgscan, pvscan, lvscan - diagnostic tools
vgcfgbackup - backup tool

see the man page, if you have these tools installed
