Hello, just looking to get some assistance or get pointed in the right direction for this.

I seem to be having some sort of lvm issue, possibly an initramfs issue?

When booting, the system seems to be unable to find the volume group for the root system. It will say exactly that when booting, and then it will say it can't find the mapper device(in this case, /dev/mapper/shinoko--vg-root), and it will drop to the busybox initramfs shell.

In this shell, I can see the hard drive and partition that the volume is hosted on manually, (/dev/sda), but running lvm commands to scan the system(like lvm pvs or lvm lvs) will come back with nothing.

When I boot a live environment, I have no issues accessing that volume group at all. I can see it via lvs/pvs, it's device is available in /dev/mapper, and I can even mount it and seem to be able to access all the data on it just fine.

I've tried rebuilding grub and the initramfs while chrooted into the system from a liveusb, but still seem to be at this same point.

Do you have any advice on where to look next? I'm not quite sure where to go from here.

Thanks in advance!
