Okay, I now know what *probably* have happened. My proprietary
motherboard - MSI PC Mate B350 tricked me - after updating the firmware
and enabling the "UEFI mode" instead of "UEFI or legacy BIOS" I got a
higher resolution and network started to work normally. Before enabling
it, the GUI installer couldn't find network connection itself, so I had
to manually configure network connection by using ifconfig and dhclient,
then I just followed the GUI installer, and it somehow let me continue
with or without networking. 
Tried switching back to BIOS mode, but I can't reproduce the bug
anymore. None of this happens on my librebooted machine, tried hard to
break the installation :). Guess that's it, thanks for your time. I'm
probably going to sell this nonfree machine anyway.
