How can I Disable or Remove ("LVM") at boottime so the drive is not encrypted?

When I installed the ubuntu server, I accidentally installed LVM (Linux Volume Manager). I received false errors on the drive when I tried to make an Image of the drive. I would like to disable or remove LVM completley so I can Image the drive with Acronis True Image.

The used space on the harddisk is 3.5GB and when I try to Image the drive with the errors it's 180GB.

How can I remove LVM at boot time without messing up all the configurations on the ubuntu server?
