As expected, there is no newline (hex 0a) character at the end of the file. Read the file into an editor, add a newline at the end, and write it back out.

Re-reading the partition table ...

If you created or changed a DOS partition, /dev/foo7, say, then use dd(1)
to zero the first 512 bytes:  dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/foo7 bs=512 count=1
(See fdisk(8).)

Is the problem now fixed? I believe that vgdisplay should no longer complain about a missing device.

Because of the way you are violating LQ rules by spamming the forums with links to this thread, I do not intend to investigate this any further.

As far as I can see, the LVM structure has been fixed. Does that disk still fail to boot? What happens now?
