Install dies at waiting for hardware to init - sorta

Several messages to and from Mark Lord, the sata_mv driver is not what
is causing the install to hang. Also the Highpoint problems of
overwritten sectors seem to only be a problem if you boot/load
grub/lilo on the array.
Is it possible to boot with a kernel argument that bypassed sata_mv?
Something like sata_mv=0 or something? I know I can blacklist it, but
what can I do for an installation?
