Unfortunately the various chips supported by e1000e are all subtly
different and each new chip seems to need extra code in the driver. 
Debian 9 still has Linux 4.9 and we haven't backported those driver

There is supposed to be an optional installer build that uses a newer
kernel version, but that hasn't officially happened yet.

At this point you might be better off using the alpha release of the
installer for Debian 10 "buster".
