I had a similar problem.  (I'm not using RAID).

There was a difference among /dev  and /etc/lvmtab from the real-root-device
and your correspondents in the initrd (it lacked /dev/vg00 / *).
I copied /dev and /etc/lvmtab and I re-built the initrd.
Today no longer vg01 exists, just vg00. Everything works fine.

BTW: my SWAP also lives in a LV (only /boot is out) .
I hope this helps !
