After LVM, start error

I installed Debian4.0r4 former on my laptop, using LVM.
When I recently install it again, I decide not to use LVM. But when I reboot, it says that /dev/sdb5(my / dictionary) does not exist, and then enter a shell(can't use tty)

I don't know what to do.

Sounds like your kernel isn't "LVM aware". Perhaps you need to build an initrd?
