Next you have to format the SSD (I assume the SSD is installed in your box - else you have to put it into an external enclosure).
Right click on the Windows 8 Start menu and click on 'All Apps' (on the bottom right). Here find 'Command Prompt' and right click on it. On the bottom left click on 'Run as administrator'.
Once the little black command prompt window opens, type or paste those commands one after another and hit Enter after each command. Make sure you use the exact command lines as shown. Command prompt is very finagle and will not work if you make a parameter or space mistake. These are the commands:
Select disk n (where n is the number that was given for your SSD in List disk)
Create partition primary align=1024
Format fs=ntfs quick
When you are done with that, You have to take an image of your current C partition and the 350MB system partition. Best is to use free Macrium. Here is how.
Once you are done with that, post back and then we will get you the Macrium restore CD and restore the C and system partitions to the SSD. Don't bother to create the restore CD yourself. It would take several hours to make the WinPE CD and the Linux version is useless. I have uploaded it all ready made and we'll go with that.
