    S5000PSL hard drive issue.


      Ok, so I got my last issue with Grub fixed, now I have another issue, I reinstalled linux using LVM, seems once I make the LVM, and assign it a volume group and volume containers, when I reboot, at the first screen It shows me the hard drives, but once I set a LVM they go to 'disk verification failed' . Now I can boot my usb key format the drives out and it will identify them properly, I've tried different ports for the drives and no change, So I formatted them out to ext2/JFS/XFS partitions respectivly, updated to a 3.1.0 kernel and the same issue with the LVM becomes present once again even though I have not made a LVM, i reboot and voila 'hard disk verification failed' these are two brand new identical 320GB drives.  I'm kinda stuck here as google gives no information on the issue, other then to 'reset the cpu's into there sockets' which I think wouldn't do a darn thing for me.
