I was starting the install when an error happened: "The disk etc.."
I don't remember now
And asked for a restart.
But I opened the Disk Utility and formated the SSD to a Mac Extended (Journaled) (Bad ideia).
So now the installer don't even start, it's stopping before open the Mac Os installer.

From step 5 in that guide: "5) Select your language, press Continue, and Agree. Now click Utilities in the Menu Bar, and open Disk Utility. This time we want to select your SSD drive, then select the Partition tab. (This can also be performed on an external flash/HDD drive.) Volume Scheme is "1 Partition", Name is "OSXMINI9" (all caps, no quotes), Format is "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)", and you need to click "Options..." to change it to "GUID Partition Table". Click OK, Apply, and confirm the decision. Once it is done formatting, close Disk Utility, select your new partition, and click Continue..."
Good luck! Let us know if your FAT32 method works.

I think the Installer was having a hard time reading the format, all FAT32 should do is allow the Installer to not crash so it can reformat it to Mac again. Must have been a glitch the first time around that really messed things up. However, if it does allow you to install to FAT32, do tell us, that would be fascinating.
