This is a sign that you either doesn't have compiled in a necessary driver or didn't have generated a proper initrd when compiling those drivers as a module.

Looks like it is the LVM modules. If you want to compile again from working kernel you could copy the config file with:
Code:
cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) ./.config
