Actually another user has just reported [1] that his e1000e card got
screwed up exactly at the point when the installer was probing the X
configuration. So this really seems a lot like some lethal interaction
between intel graphics and the network card.

Dave (Airlie, too many Daves on CC here really), do you by any chance see
any recent change in kernel intel graphic parts of DRM be causing this
breakage?
