I'd consider 1 1G SSD, prices have come down a lot.

Also not sure why UEFI stopped ubuntu, couple of months ago I installed it on an i5-8400 desktop (new Asus Coffee Lake mobo) - no issues with UEFI.

Perhaps it was your installer [thumb drive I'm guessing] not formatted correct for UEFI boot?

Once installed it should be able to handle UEFI being turned back on
- I once wrongly turned it off when adding a second SSD, ubuntu still booted
(although it did stop in GRUB to tell me UEFI had changed to off, but I still could start the linux. Did a couple of things, shutdown, switched UEFI back on and it booted right up... I believe ubuntu by default installs for both.)
