Thanks! However the partition is fine and fit so I should be able to dd everything off of it.
The output of gpart was the following: root enterprise:~# gpart -w hmlvm,1.5 /dev/hde
Begin scan... Possible partition(ReiserFS filesystem), size(50431mb), offset(14mb)
* Warning: short read near sector(120103011), 64512 bytes instead of 66048. Skipp
Checking partitions... Partition(Linux ext2 filesystem): primary Ok.
Guessed primary partition table: Primary partition(1) type: 131(0x83)(Linux ext2 filesystem) size: 50431mb #s(103284656) s(29799-103314454) chs: (29/9/1)-(1023/15/63)d (29/9/1)-(102494/7/62)r
Primary partition(2) type: 000(0x00)(unused) size: 0mb #s(0) s(0-0) chs: (0/0/0)-(0/0/0)d (0/0/0)-(0/0/0)r <snip> part 3 and 4 where 'unused'.
Now gpart found something, however not the missing LVM PV i was hoping. Or atleast, I don't think so. I will google around to see how to make a 1 on 1 copy of this disk, and then try to write it. I'll report back. In the mean time, keep those ideas comming : )
