I don't know about "lvmcreate_initrd", seems this is Redhad specific (I'm using SuSE).
I googled for it and found it should create some file:

/boot/initrd-lvm-<KernelVersion>.gz

is this created on your system? (May be your /boot partition is full?)
IF it was created, please verify, if it is referenced in your grub/lilo
configuration. Can you please post an "ls -ltr /boot", to show us the
content of your /boot partition and your grub or lilo configuration?

You also should edit the /etc/fstab of the new LVM-root change the name
of the new root partition/volume.

Dieter.
