It is odd that install fails on SSD. I have a SSD so I am going to try to install GhostBSD on it. Also, since you are able to install GhostBSD on a platter disk, try the process below.

On Platter disk:
1. install GhBSD

On SSD:
1. create at least root /, and Swap (create, usr, var, etc. if you prefer) partitions with gpart live GhostBSD
2. format ssd partition UFS
3. mount the SSD on your platter installation, say, /mnt (if multiple, mount them all)
4. copy/clone data for each partition from platter disk to SSD with cpdup

Code: Select all

# cpdup -vv -f -o -I / /mnt (upper case i)
  (repeat process for each partition, if multiple were created)
# cpdup -vv -f -o -I /usr /mnt2
5. dd the mbr from platter to ssd and/or (if EFI, copy the /media/disk/efi/boot/bootx64.efi

That's it, sooo easy : )
