Hello Firsttimer

This may or may not be the problem, but it seems you are going against
the standard advice to put PVs on *partitions* rather than *drives*,
even if it results in a single partition using all the available space.

It may seem pointless to create a single partition to cover the whole
drive, but it is the best way.

(Remember to reboot after changing the partition table.)
