Unhappy Bricked Acer C720?

I got a SSD for Christmas, so I popped it in my Chromebook. I tried installing Windows 7 on a Chrubuntu partition, but it complained about no Gpt partition or something. I shut it down, took out the usb, and restarted. Then, Ctrl L worked, but Ctrl D started, showed a black screen, and came back to the developer mode screen. I tried recovering Chrome OS, so I pressed space at the screen. This however, just makes the laptop start, show a black screen, then reboot. Is this fixable?

Nevermind, fixed it by repeatedly mashing Esc + Refresh + Power during the blackscreen loop. Whew, that could have gone much, much worse!
