LVM: error: disk ‘lvmid/(uuid)’ not found.

The dreaded Linux server that does not start up after a reboot. There are many online articles on how to fix this but there is also a simple solution that has worked for me.

Boot into the system using a rescue CD / rescue mode on a standard Linux install CD and allow it to mount and chroot you into the server’s root file system.


# update-grub
# grub-install /dev/xvdX
# exit # (exit the chroot)
# reboot
