Please clarify. Are you asking if Ubuntu works well with SSDs, or if you can boot from a USB flash drive, or boot from a USB SSD??

.....

Can you install from a USB onto a blank SSD? Yes, it's no different from a standard HDD.

But.....you don't copy the ISO as you mention, you INSTALL. 2 very different animals, unless for some reason you want a bootable install image SSD (which would seem like a waste of time - particularly if you can already boot from USB).

The Arch link has a lot of good info. You may want to plan partitioning whether MBR or gpt and then which partitions you want first. Are you dual booting with Windows on the SSD?

Do SSD need customization?
