This insane behaviour is caused by initrd:

Shouldn't need to change anything, if it can be done right from the start.
Of course you should. You've downloaded a completely generic kernel and
expect it to know what modules _your_ laptop requires. The only way to
change that is to make your own initrd. And while you're at it, you
might as well compile your own kernel.
