Maybe answering a bit late, but I had the same issue when I let Ubuntu choose the best mirror server for its repositories updates, after a few minutes of a fresh install.

You get the idea. This should work on any other OS too. Try using a bunch of modifier keys and smacking the ...

Is Ubuntu LVM using some sort of RAID underneath? No, not so far as I know (although it is possible to configure LVM on top of RAID i.e. with one or more RAID arrays as physical volumes - I assume you didn't do that).
