Did you find a solution? . . . What is it?

If not, I think you need to supply more info.; perhaps more details, especially about:

I haven't set up LVM for a while, but my recollection is that you create PV's from UNmounted partitions.

What references have you consulted?

What Google & other searches have you done?
