p2v and linux lvm issue

Tried P2V for the first time on a RH3u9 server with LVM partitions. The VM image was created successfully.

Got the following error when I tried to start the VM:

Activating logical volumes
vgchange -- no volume groups found
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umount /initrd/proc failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel memory:228 freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

Is this an LVM issue or a RH3 issue?

Any ideas or fixes?
