Fair enough. Just keep in mind that I can be less sure that my
suggestions for solutions will work as intended since I don't know all
the details of your modifications to the standard Debian configuration.

Maybe it is better to first have a closer look what is going on with the
system as it is. After booting, post the output of:

lsmod | grep snd

If shows any snd* modules loaded, unload them as root, e.g. "modprobe -r
snd-hda-intel", "modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss", etc.

Then run these commands as root

modprobe -v snd-hda-intel
modprobe -v snd-intel8x0

and post their output here. I would also be interested in the result of

grep "install snd " /etc/modprobe.d/*

to see the install command that modprobe complains about.
