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 : )

Hello,
Simply reporting back. I was able to install GhostBSD on a SSD. I used a SanDisk 180GB SSD. One item to note, I used the whole drive for GhostBSD. Also, I completely wiped the drive with 'gpart' then created a GPT type partition table format. I did not try it on a mbr type partition table format, sorry.

Here no problem with the installation. I little slow, I think due to the speed of the DVD i've used.

Installed on a
Model Family: SandForce Driven SSDs
Device Model: SanDisk SDSSDA120G
Created a mirror zfs volume with other HDDs for storage and the system is stable and working fine.

Little issue with my KVM that I'll report on another post.

I have Ghost installed on a generic 120GB SSD with ZFS. I had some problems with the original motherboard, I believe with the chip set. I'm now running an ASUS F1A75-M PRO/CSM with an AMD A8-3870 processor and 6GB of DDR3 RAM, and it installed easily with ZFS and runs fine. I"m also using a IOGEAR KVM switch without problem. I went through a lot of gyrations until I replaced the mobo; I hope that's not your problem.
