Install device-mapper + LVM2 tools _additionally_ in a seperate
location and run "vgscan ; vgchange -a y -P".

That might still leave you with unusable LVs in case their beginning
is gone with the failed disk.

If you decide to do that get back to us in case you've got installation
related questions.
