You could try:
1. Install without choosing Xfce. Untick the desktop item when asked to
2. You'll boot into a tty. Login and and change sources.lst to "jessie".
3. Update, upgrade and dist-upgrade.
4. Reboot. Login and
apt-get xfce4 lightdm
The first gives you what d-i gives you. The second has fewer packages
but is fine. I'd choose the latter.
6. Hopefully report success. :)
