This is probably a problem in the initramfs-tools package which creates 
the initrd. That should take care of loading the module.

You can work around this by using the rescue mode of the installer (add 
rescue/enable=true boot parameter) and then:
- proceed until you can select the / file system of your new system
- start a chroot shell on that filesystem
- (maybe mount additional filesystems)
- add the module to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
- update the initrd using update-initramfs
