Bug Description

I tried to upgrade to 13.10 a couple weeks back and had the same problem, so I reinstalled from 13.04 and then upgraded again today. I'm not sure if this is an lvm2 problem or a grub problem.

When I boot, I get to the initramfs system with the following alert:
ALERT! /dev/mapper/ubuntu-root does not exist

I do an ls -la /dev/mapper to see what there and there's another volume there. I then do the ls -la again and then all the volumes show up. I exit initramfs by typing exit and I'm good to go, i.e. my system works fine.
