Hello I am a Debian user and just bought a nice laptop from system 76, I
wiped ubuntu and proceed to install Debian, well it turns our that Debian
does not recognize my network card, and the Grub packed on the installer
does not recognize the NVMe drive correctly, so I can not boot, nor connect
to the internet.

I love Debian and would hate to leave because my Hw was not supported, I
know that the kernel 4 does support NVMe drives and that there is a grub
package in backports that does too, but how in the world can I install

I tried getting a shell from the install DVD and chrooting into the
installation to install the previously downloaded grub-efi-amd64 and
linux-image 4.7xxx from backports, but the installation fails saying there
are unmet dependencies...

this page mentions patch for ubuntu to make the driwer work:


It could work for debian too (ubuntu is de facto repackaged debian).
seems the killer e2400 card is just alx network card, just with different
PCI ID, so the kernel doesn't know...
