Now please answer some questions.

For starters on the working (installed) computer:

* Shows `lspci -v -s 00:19.0` indeed the Network Interface Card?
  ( are we quering the right PCI slot? )

* What is the output of `lspci -n -s 00:19.0`

* `/sbin/modinfo e1000e` gives many numbers.
  Do you see numbers from output of `lspci -n -s 00:19.0`?
  If not, provide the whole output of `/sbin/modinfo e1000e`

* Output of `uname -a`

Next is booting with Debian-Installer 8.5.
The request is *booting* with the installer.
(there is *no need* to install the system again)
Go to a shell in d-i ( ALT-F2 )

* Output of `uname -a`

* Shows `modinfo e1000e` numbers of `lspci -n -s 00:19.0`?

Some more requests

* keep 835993@bugs.debian.org in the loop

* in line quoting
