Restore fs from lvm?

Hi all

One day my os fedora couldn't boot. I checked it from LiveCd, only lvm volume was found, then i installed lvm2 and checked lvm-volumes with fsck. They was fixed. But i still can't boot. I had loaded grub from cd, and it didn't found os. my /boot directory on lvm volume with fedora is also empty. how can i restore it? Whole disk is healthy.

Did you edit any of your partition tables?

To restore your boot directory you should be able to use the Fedora CD/DVD and use the partition manager to create a new /boot directory. System Recovery or Rescue Mode is another option-
To fix this problem, boot in rescue mode and modify the /boot/grub/grub.conf file.

If not you may have to reinstall Fedora. I recommend Fedora 19 or 20.

Is this a laptop or a desktop? Make and model will help.
