Can you test quantal net-install or server iso?
I believe this is now fixed due to fixing bug #964957.

  In Ubuntu installer, LVM device nodes are not created in time

Status in “partman-auto-lvm” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is similar to bug #964957, but requires a different workaround,
  so I am reporting it as a new issue.

  When install Ubuntu with root and swap on LVM, the installer sometimes
  warns, "Could not stat device /dev/mapper/hostname-root - No such file
  or directory".  Selecting Retry does not fix the issue.  However, if I
  switch to a different virtual terminal and run "vgscan --mknodes",
  then switch back to the install terminal and select "Retry",
  everything works as usual.

  In the Precise Pangolin betas, I did not have to use this workaround
  (but did have to use the workaround in bug #964957).

  I will attach a few screenshots in case they help to clarify things.
