I am sorry to hear that. I think you could try one more thing, diskpart | clean command sequence, it wouldn't take long.
Take a look at this thread - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/263475-32-windows-detect-shows-bios#6093423
With no success trying different brand SSD is not a bad idea after all, I use SSDs from five different producers, they are all working fine.

What about the SSD's firmware, is it the latest MU02 revision?

Most likely you are refering to Storage Executive piece of software.
Personally I have done all firmware upgrades with manual boot file method. You can download .iso file and burn it to cd/dvd disk or to USB pendrive with a tool like Universal USB Installer.
I like this way of firmware upgrade better, it is not vulnerable to situations where parts of other software (OS, internet browser or java environment) are not working as they should.

Of course. But having latest firmware installed is probably the last step I would try. What if firmware upgrade would solve your problem?
With latest BIOS, latest SSD firmware, proper drivers and clean/unitialized drive it would be safe to say there is nothing left to do I believe.

You don't need to waste CD just for that, you can use Universal USB Installer to prepare bootable USB thumbdrive.
It is weird that you couldn't install the OS but it is working after using Paragon. Thanks for posting this information. It's good to hear you have solved it
