Yes, use the 'nomodeset' or something. You can select it after the language
selection in the CD boot screen.

> SRU Justification:
>
> Impact: SATA drives on the MBP 7.1 are not usable as the ahci mode is not
> working correctly.
>
> Fix: Two patches taken from upstream, which have also been marked for
> stable inclusion will blacklist the MBP from using AHCI and falling back to
> the ide driver which works. Second half forces DMA on.
>
> Testcase: See report. Disk drive not usable without the patches.
