Migrate to SSD

I got an SSD drive sponsored by Intel. Ok, let's build it in an compare performance with spinning harddrive and without.

iometer measures 111 IOPS for the spinning disk, 2s default access specification, one worker and 2122 IOPS for the SSD.

After installing the SSD booting takes 24 seconds, instead of 33 before.
