Slip of something building new server... Not booting :(


I got a new case, and decided to take everything and just chuck it over to the new case, due to more fan space and hard drive space etc.

... But something happened, everytime it boots now this is the error i get.

Code:
Uncompressing Linux. . . Ok, booting the kernel.
Red Hat nash version 6.0.19 starting
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while. . .
  Found volume group "VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2
  2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00" now active
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0): ext3_check_descriptors: Block bitmap for group 1 not in group (block 33588225)!
EXT-fs: group descriptors corrupted!
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: Invalid argument
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
All the drives are PATA, and connected the same way as it was previously connected. I think grub might be messing around.

Any idea what causes this or how to fix it.

This isn't GRUB. GRUB is out of the picture once the kernel loads and starts running.

The error messages indicate that this is an LVM issue with virtual device dm-0. You should look at your LVM configuration to find the problem.

Figured GRUB is not the culprit. My LVM got damaged... severely and no recent backups

So now I'm off trying to do as much as I can to get back on schedule.

Thanks anyways
