Thank you for your reply, I realize that I must have done something rather bone-headed and I am usually pretty clued.  That being said I am still in the same pickle I was in to begin with, something constructive would be fantastically appreciated.  If there were proper documentation *anywhere* google-able I would not have bothered the mailing list.  I am pretty sure the data must be in tact since this was done in single user mode and no writes to the disk/volume have occurred since the two commands were run, I have /etc/lvm in tact with information prior to and after the event.  If someone would be so kind as to please let me know exactly what information they might need, I will do my level best with minimum "back and forth" to provide such information to get out of said pickle.  And I furthermore promise not to do it again.

/Christian

What's with people and "extending" disks? DO NOT DO THAT!!!! But if you do, then you can't forget to do all the rest of the necessary steps. You have to fix the partition table. And you have to make sure your PVresize doesn't run off the end of the media. Is VMware's 250G really 250G when probed by PVscan? Doubt it very much.

Next time don't partition disks for starters. And "grow" filesystems by ADDing disks and adding them to the volume group and then resize2fs. Just because Windows was written for dummies and lets you get away with what you did, doesn't mean you should attempt it in Linux if you don't know what you're doing.
