FFSv2, apparently it is the default now! I thought it was used only for large disks.

But a subsequent fsck on the new partition fails:
bash-4.2# fsck /dev/sd0a
** /dev/rsd0a
Invalid signature in boot block: 0000
Sounds like all you need to do is make it bootable.

cf fdisk -i
and installboot
Actually, it was more delicate... stranger. This was through the USB adapter (hence sd*). Once attached to the internal ATA controller, fsck recognizes everyhing correctly. Isn't that strange?

About the performance of this SSD, I wil lreporto separately: I have a mixed experience with the laptop close to freezes of unusability.
