This is beacuse i am not installing the OS in usual way. I want cloning of OS. Means i want to create a OS from an existing install os. So i have to make partition on this disk manually.
Then don't bother with LVM, create a few separate partitions with your Dom0 LVM, and mount those *directly* as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc. in the DomU. LVM is cool and neat and wonderful, but it's also pretty flipping pointless to put on top of an existing LVM system. Like gzipping a file twice, you don't gain much and it costs you management and computational overhead to deal with.
