@erik.Kut, Linux normally installed on the drive marked GPT. In particular, Ubuntu. That's just the partition to FAT32 to install Linux will fail on NTFS, too, will fail.
Hmm I put debian he quietly saw as the install partition the USB flash drive that I actually put it,but the ssd in GPT nevidel.. - erik.Kut commented on April 4th 20 at 00:56
@erik.Kut, most likely, Debian saw the flash drive like device which can be used for installation, however, he would suggest to format in one of the native file systems (ext2, ext3, ext4, xfs, btrfs).
When he stuck the flash drive and turned the computer on, press key to select the boot device (often F12 or F11, sometimes F8) menu appears, which has a USB flash drive is SSD. Please note, the paragraph with the stick you have there only one? In principle there can be two points: (1) to boot from pendrive in EFI mode (2) boot from the stick in legacy mode. If in fact there is such a choice, then you need to choose EFI then problems with visibility GPT no.

On the other hand, well, just booting from the stick occurs, you can solve the problem otherwise. Write on a flash drive any live Linux distribution. Load, run fdisk at the command prompt and create on ssd new partition table dos instead of gpt. Off, and then loaded with your current Debian pendrive, now on ssd already not gpt. - ross.Greenfelder commented on April 4th 20 at 00:59
