This repeat is somewhat strange, but anyway...

What happens if you invoke
in this shell? If it activates the volume group, exit the shell and
see if it boots up.
If it does not, then please check whether
* your disk was detected (you should find it amongst the kernel messages),
* your physical volume (probably /dev/sda2, but you can check eg. by
issuing the pvs command after booting off the installation CD in
rescue mode) is available,
* lsmod reports dm_mod, dm_mirror and dm_snapshot,
* and /etc/lvm/lvm.conf is sane (scan=?, filter=?; vgchange -vvv -ay
may give further clues),
* ls -l /dev/mapper.
