    GRUB + LVM = GRUB _ at boot

    Hello everyone.

    My hard drive has

    /dev/sda1 (/boot)
    /dev/sda2 (efi)
    /dev/sda3 (lvm)
    /dev/mapper/fedora-root (/)
    /dev/mapper/fedora-home (/home)
    /dev/mapper/fedora-win (unused atm)

    I install using the ubuntu installation cd and when restarting I only get

    GRUB _

    on boot. Left it for 10-20 minutes and there wasn't a change. I had gentoo before and was able to get booting properly there. I'm guessing that this is a lvm issue?

    Probably you can make the new operating system bootable by chrooting into it and doing the following,
    (a) add an /etc/crypttab file
    (b) edit /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
    (c) create a new initrd.img
