Try it one more time using this Download | Ubuntu to reformat your SSD. You can also save any critical files before doing anything as well.

What *I* would do is not invest further in a broken Mini 9. But then my Mini 9 is no longer in active use. Even if it was, I'd probably put any money towards something else, such as an Ultrabook. Your priorities and budget may be different.
Then again, I have more experience with analyzing such problems and would at least try to figure out where the problem was. That you replaced the SSD and still saw a problem is more than a bit strange, unless you got a defective replacement. I can't think of other components that would present these symptoms.

i`ve been thinking about what has been posted here and i would like to offer my advice based on experience with my mini which was a bitch to fix, you say your mini blue screened after a system update and died, you replaced the hard drive and it still won`t work right, have you tried replacing the ram and reformatting the old drive which i believe may still work, my thinking is the update somehow stressed your machine and the memory failed causing the bsod and maybe even damaged your hard drive, do you have access to another mini or pc that can take a pci-e drive to test it, if not send it to me and i`ll try it in my mini, i found changing the memory help fixed my machine it might help with yours.
