comment Cannot boot Ubuntu 12.04 from SSD
There is something going on with the bootloader at install time. Others have similar problems so im doubtful about getting it to boot anywhere at the moment. Ill try another OS on it, make sure the firmware is updated (again) and go from there...i guess

I can boot from a live disk. When i do, the SSD will show up as mounted external storage. In the terminal, i cannot change or update grub even as root. I installed the OS on a regular HD which seems to work just fine for some reason. I then imaged that disk with dd. Now, I'm dd-ing it back to the ssd. Maybe success will follow?

comment Cannot boot Ubuntu 12.04 from SSD
I looked at the BIOS and checked the boot order. I can set the boot order and location ie, USB, CD, SATA Cards, etc but I dont have finer control over the boot sequence; I'm using a Proliant server i guess that is the problem. So when the BIOS hits the SSD it just hangs, no purple screen, nothing. Any thoughts?
