Add the error you get in your bug report. If you can't catch the log a 
snapshot (aka: photo) will also be useful.

Lack of firmware should not prevent the installation, at least if you 
performed a local install using a CD/DVD as source. In such case, the 
installer should go on with no network adapter detected :-?
