You don't have to install Ubuntu.
Can you actually run Ubuntu from the Live CD (I do not mean install)?
I'm not suggesting this as a permanent solution, but it will tell us if the OS files are working.
If you have "time to waste" you could:
- Create a backup image of your Windows setup
- Format the SSD
- Install Ubuntu only
This will prove that the installer is working properly.
Another option is to install an earlier version (e.g. 12.04) and then upgrade to the latest version using the Update Manager.
