it seems I have the same kind of problem; what did you change in your lvm.conf ?

I made a squeeze install:
  ( http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_Proxmox_VE_on_Debian_Squeeze ) because 
since the upgrade to RC1 I can't boot on pve-kernel-2.6.32-10-pve (grub is OK 
but boot locks on the access of pve VG).

I did try an install with the ISO RC1 : same problem
I did try an install with the new ISO (2.0 stable): same problem.

If I boot with the squeeze kernel, everything is OK...

I have :

dpkg -l | grep lvm
ii  lvm2                                2.02.88-2pve2                Linux 
Logical Volume Manager

And the 2 kernels (squeeze and pve) :
ls -alt /boot
total 32004
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root     7168 30 mars  17:27 grub
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root     1024 30 mars  17:27 .
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 11566355 30 mars  17:27 initrd.img-2.6.32-10-pve
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 10335195 30 mars  16:50 initrd.img-2.6.32-5-amd64

The machine is an HP Z800 with an LSILOGIC MPT SAS BIOS C1068E SAS 1068E with 2 
300G sas disk in physical raid 1.
It was OK with the first release of Proxmox 2 (december).

Any idea ?
Thank you
