Not that I knew about problems regarding such an install. I had my first
install of Fedora (24) to an msata SSD quite a few months ago, and I'm
not aware of any problems that I thought could be related to SSD
architecture. On a second SSD (a "real" SSD, not msata) in the same
computer I have Debian Linux installed - I never even speculated about
whether the fact the disks are SSD's could lead to problems ... :)

I think I let the Fedora installer wipe the SSD before partitiong it -
also because MS Windows was on it before - just to make sure of a clean
The only problem with this installation was that the installer at the
end of the install said something like I wouldn't be able to boot the
system. It was wrong: I could boot Fedora. Tho' I have two different --
although with different wordings for them - UEFI boot entries for
Fedora. My guess: it's a UEFI bug, or a feature ... :)
And yes: I also didn't take the LVM partitioning options for the disk.
Not for F24, and not, IINM, for Debian. On Fedora just SWAP, /home, /
