Ok, sorry for the mix-up.
You were right, the problem was about the partition table.
Actually, even if it was a gpt partition table, it was corrupted. I
seems to be a ubuntu parted problem. I had to rebuild pared from the
sources and when I ran it, it said :
GNU Parted 1.8.8
Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.
Warning: /dev/cciss/c1d0 contains GPT signatures, indicating that it has
table. However, it does not have a valid fake msdos partition table, as it
should. Perhaps it was corrupted -- possibly by a program that doesn't
understand GPT partition tables. Or perhaps you deleted the GPT table,
now using an msdos partition table. Is this a GPT partition table?

So I deleted the existing partition and recreated a new one. I found
back all my data on this new partition, and on reboot there is no
Thanks a lot for your help ! :)

I checked the label with xfs_admin -l :
# xfs_admin -l /dev/cciss/c1d0p1
label = ""
I tried to blank it in case there is something invisible :
# xfs_admin -L -- /dev/cciss/c1d0p1
writing all SBs
new label = ""
But it seems to be the same. :(
No, not the filesystem label, the disklabel, otherwise known as the
partition table - dos vs. gpt. This is something you set with parted or
fdisk, not xfs_admin.
