Hello, final solution is as follows:

In short, nouveau is making ubuntu freeze, so we're booting around it
and choosing nvidia drivers to run after full install.

boot from usb
try ubuntu
install ubuntu from desktop, choose erase disk
if at ubuntu 14.04,
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo do-release-upgrade
restart when needed

press esc at startup to get bios
move over to the far right tab and choose override boot to ubuntu
go to advanced options
go to recovery mode
go to search your computer, software and updates > additional drivers
choose nvidia and intel

After these steps the only thing not working for me was my earphones,
which was detected but not outputting based on me plugging it in and out
and watching my computer detect type of output in sound settings. Also
had sound from the laptop speakers.

installed checkbox-qt via
sudo apt-get install checkbox-qt
ran checkbox from gui
restart and enjoy
