Recently my hard disk was crashed and I bought a new one. I reinstalled Ubuntu 16.04 on it with default configuration-
/ 499 GB LVM partition /swap 5.99 GB //boot 597 MB
On every boot I recieve this error
lvmetad is not active yet using direct activation during sysinit ubuntu
After that it stuck there for a while. After that it reaches logon screen and stucks there too.
I hace checked other solutions regarding the lvmetad problem but they are not working. Specifically adding "nomodeset" to grub file.
Here is dmesg log Here is systemd-analyze blame results

Another problem is that Ubuntu creates one partition during installation so I have no way to backup my data.
Possible solutions I want are- 1. Replace LVM partitioning with ext4. 2. Fix the lvmetad error. 3. Or as a last resort reinstall Ubuntu or another distro.
