I vote for adding "sata_nv".  It is also required for my computer.  And
as Ricardo, I had a hard time trying to figure out why I get:

  waiting for partition 'root' to appear

Also I recall there was another person who had the same problem (missing
"sata_nv" module).  There was a conversation on the subject here:

A missing kernel module required for HDD, may be the end of the game for
most users who want to try GuixSD, so I think we should add such modules
by default.  I don't know what else is missing, but "sata_nv" looks like
a good candidate to be added.
