/dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1 were part of the same LVM but the Volume group name is missing.
I'm guessing that you need to recreate the volume group with vgcreate however I am worried that I this might delete the files already on there. Does anyone know how to recreate the LVM without losing the data on the disk? I have done some reading on this however haven't found the solution. Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you
Hasn't worked.Looks like it may be completely messed up. I'm attempting to use testdisk to get files back. But is not looking promising. Luckily I use crashplan so most of the important stuff should be backed up. I think I have learnt the hard way on this one. At least I know that LVM is not as simple to transfer to another server like standard partitions.
here is an article I've referred people to before, and gives a good idea of what LVM needs to work. Might give you some ideas.
I'm not a huge fan of LVM, but I wouldn't expect just mangling the OS to cause you to lose data is a separate LVM.
