supermicro sat2-mv8 sata raid card driver in Freebsd 9.0

the driver for the  supermicro sat2-mv8 card (88sx61xx chip) is in the 
kernel (mvs.ko module) indeed.
But the kernel keeps loading the wrong driver (hptrr.ko) : even when I 
escape to the loaderprompt before booting the kernel and give the 
command "unload hptrr.ko" or "disable-module hptrr" , the command 
"pciconf" -lv still shows the hptrr driver attached to the sat2-mv8 card 
(hptrr at pci0:3:1:0) when the system is booted from the boot CD.

So how can I resolve this problem without editing the iso-image of the 
boot CD or DVD and getting rid of the hptrr.ko module ?

kind regards,
