what are you passing to the kernel as root= parameter (in grub.cfg)? For me,
root=/dev/mapper/vg-lv (replace 'vg' and 'lv' by the corresponding names)
works just fine - root=/dev/vg/lv may or may not work just as well. You can
experiment with different values at the grub command prompt without changing
grub.cfg. What kernel version are you using?

Hope that helps.
