Yes the system came back up fine, boots normally. The Suse logo
graphics stuff is not showing, only real text screen mode grub2
already to begin with, but that was already prior to the switch to

There is a fstrim service or timer that should be on.

Okay thanks will see about those trim commands or procedures with SSD.

The current situation is: on every boot the system is detecting the
sata devices, shown in the kernel logs (journalctl -b) just fine, and
a bit later it shows some kind of exception and a reset of this one
sata device. the other sata disks (classical hdd) and cdrom dont show
this messages.
Also the same sata cable worked fine on the previous hdd type of
device, but I even replaced the old sata cable with a newer one for
the ssd now. But still.
This message shows up on every boot. when the device is initialised.
Is this something to worry about?

I don't know. :-(

You could try another cable, just in case.

On my laptop I did the same operation, replace with an SSD. A percent of
the boots, the disk is not recognized and the machine claims there is no
operating system. I just try again. Some times I hit it with my palm,
maybe there is a connector a bit lose. I have to open it again one day
to reseat the cables to see if that's it.

Maybe SSD gives those problems on old machines.
