[linux-lvm] Dead Motherboard.. LVM Problems..



Ok, heres my bad luck story.. have a nice happy linux box runing 3 hdd's .. 2 of them nice SATA devices (/dev/sda1, /dev/sdb1) and one happy go lucky 200gig /dev/hda1 now, i noticed my bios was out of date.. so figured why not risk an upgrade.. ... and now the horror story.. in the middle of the update.. the power to my hole house flickers off.. and very loud son of a b*tch echo's through the house.. when the power came back on, my motherboard was dead, nothing more than a beeping paperwight.. soo, i ran out and bought me a new motherboard, i even upgraded from my dead ECS 755-A2 to a nice DFI Lanparty UT nForce 3 250Gb .. i get the motherboard, hook every thing up.. it boots... and screams.. couldnt find device for uuid..... well i boot into linux rescue cd.. and run a nice vgscan.. pvscan.. lvscan.. and its all happy.. finds every thing has no error msgs.. i can even move around the hole LV and look at contents of files.. and every thing looks just find.. but.. still wont boot.. i gave up and figured maybe i can do a reinstall booted into the installer and it says that /dev/hda1 isnt part of VolGroup00 but.. if you goto edit it.. wow magicly you can edit it.. becuase its part of VolGroup00!!! soo i cant asign my mount points becuase of size problems.. i want to keep the data i have on this system.. i just want to be able to boot again..
 
this is a Fedora Core 4 system, i have the full install DVD/Rescue.. i have tryed puting the disks in difrent orders, and difrent location to check and see if there might be a problem there, and have goten no change.. i will try to awnser any questions to the best of my abilitys..
Drive Layout..
/dev/hda1 - 200gig LVM
/dev/sda1 - /boot
/dev/sda2 - 120gig LVM
/dev/sdb1 - 140gig LVM
it is using /dev/sda as the primary boot device.. i even get the full color pretty grub screen.. pvscan -u says everyone has there proper UUID's no partition changes have been made at all.. this is direct rip out of the dead m-board and replaced with new .. only hardware change other that the replacing of the motherboard was removing of 1 extra soundcard.. please help me!. i dont have anyplace to store the 200gigs worth of importent data thats on my linux system..
