cosole constantly flooded with nv_sata messages

I instlled debian and as soon as i reboot, everything is flooded with messages that say:

nv_sata: Primary device added
nv_sata: Primary device removed
nv_sata: Secondary device added
nv_sata: Secondary device removed

over and over again, it makes my system completely unuable, because whenever i try to do anything, it is immediatly pushed off the top of the screen by that, it says it in all the consoles (alt+F1-F4). I'm using the AMD64 "unnoficial"testing installation, and i have 2 SATA hard disks in a raid 0 array, and my /boot is on a small partiton on my other HD that has windows on it. Grub wouldn't install when i tried putting it on the raid array. I have been looking unsuccessfully all day for some way to recompile the kernel for it, and i don't even know if that's the right thing to do.

thanks in advance for any help

Best I can offer is an avoidance of the problem.

You have nvidia's software raid, which is fake proprietary software RAID.

The above card will work with any OS, including linux, natively(no driver install). It costs as much as your motherboard, but will last longer than your motherboard. What I do is disable the nvraid on the motherboard(it's a jumper) and then install a 3ware harware RAID card. And then it's done.

You may not have the luxury of throwing money at it, in which case I would be grateful to find somebody else that has gotten nvraid to work reliably in linux. Good luck.
