Hello and thank Heinz for your help!

I could restore the system.
That's what I did it:
- It was booted with a rescue disk
- It was mounted the system files.
- Then, chroot /mnt/sysimage
- vgreduce /dev/sdb1 to remove the disk from the volume group.
- Finally, shutdown -r now

But I'm not sure how remove the disk from pvscan:
pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
pvscan -- ACTIVE   PV "/dev/sda2" of VG "disk1Vol" [68.13 GB / 0 free]
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/sdb1" is in no VG  [62.43 MB]
pvscan -- total: 2 [68.20 GB] / in use: 1 [68.14 GB] / in no VG: 1 
[62.43 MB]

Now it's inactive. Can I remove totally?
