My Debian 7 System dosn't boot anymore. The boot stop with a kernel message like thisMy Debian 7 System dosn't boot anymore. The boot stop with a kernel message like this:

[.....] Setting up LVM Volume Groups...

The problem is a snapshot of my root volume. This snapshot is 100%.

How can I boot my system so that I can do lvremove /dev/vg00/root--snap -f.

Try booting single user and then activating the volume group machinery manually.

This results in another error. Remounting root read writeable was the key. –  zzeroo Apr 4 '13 at 7:15

For the record. I've boot in single user mode, umount all lvm drives. Then and that was the jumping point I've remount / read writeable mount / -o remount,rw.

Then lvremove -fv /dev/vg00/xyz was working.
