I have tried updating grub but not managed to get it to run 
successfully.  I have not managed to get to a point where I have the 
boot partition and enough of the lvm partitions available to be able to 
update grub.

How would I go about getting to a point where I can run the update-grub 
with the relevant file systems up ?
