comment Will using a less resource intensive DE on top of Ubuntu be as fast as a distro which uses that DE as default?
You can just add all xubuntu stuff with sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop lubuntu sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop. When you reach the login screen, you will be able to choose which DE you want.

comment Trying to boot from Windows CD goes to GRUB
the MBR is 512 Bytes in size. the boot partition would not ever fit there. (that is only 64 ASCII characters!! --english royalty couldn't fit their names there!). The MBR is used by grub to start the chainloading process.

comment Ubuntu Frozen every time when Memory usage over 80%
you might consider installing zram-config although it is a swap file in RAM, it is compressed and might make the difference. Sure did on that netbook I had. Another thing to consider is adding vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50 to /etc/sysctl.conf
