Hi Martin

I had a flash drive for test purposes which was already GPT partitioned 

1 MiB Ext2 for BootBios
256 MiB Ext4 for /boot
17 GiB Ext4 for /
40 GiB Ext for /home

The installation was straight forward, only needing to reformat each 
partition - the only annoyance was that  I didn't have a chance to 
change the localname.localnetwork to something useful.

The installer detected the BootBios partition and installed Grub2 correctly.

There were no additional options for SSD or flash drives. I manually 
added "noatime" and 'discard' to the fstab entries for /,  /boot and 
/home partitions afterwards.

Also, I created  "60-schedulers.rules" and "60-vm.swappiness.conf" as 
follows and then run "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg"

With best regards, Simon

# /etc/udev/rules.d/60-schedulers.rules

# set deadline scheduler for non-rotating disks
ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]", ATTR{queue/rotational}=="0", 

# set cfq scheduler for rotating disks
ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="sd[a-z]", ATTR{queue/rotational}=="1", 

# /etc/sysctl.d/60-vm.swappiness.conf
# After installation run "/sbin/sysctl -p 
# Before removal run "/sbin/sysctl -w vm.swappiness=60"
# To check status use "cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness"
