I tried installing the OS to my SSD but it wouldn't work. The Windows 7 disc starts loading up and it states

0xc00000e9 unexpected I/O error has occurred

I'm sure my DVD drive works because it plays other DVDs and the SSD can be read by other computers as a storage device. Do I have the partition the SSD?

Try installing windows from a usb drive. It doesn't need to be partitioned.

So do I just rip the ISO file off the Windows disc and stick it on a USB?

No, here's what I suggest, if you have a functional USB thumb drive that's 4 GB or larger:
1) Go to http://www.w7forums.com/threads/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-image-downloads.12325/ and download the ISO of the version of Windows 7 you're licensed for. It's perfectly legal.
2) Use the tool at http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool to write the ISO file to the thumb drive.
