OS and APPS on SSD

I know it's been asked a million times before, but I'm looking for someone to point me to a site with a simple break down of how to get OSX and Apps onto the SSD.

It's already installed in my 2013 MBP, as the main disk and the original HDD is now where the SuperDrive was.

I've reinstalled OSX, which I have on an SDHC and everything seems ok so far, but I'm getting a pop-up saying "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." with Initialize, Ignore and Eject as options.

In disk utility, my SSD is there at least, so it definately recognised.

Any help GREATLY appreciated.

When I booted up the MBP after fitting the drives, it only gave me the original HDD as installing OSX. Can I install OSX onto the SSD at any point?

Apologies if that sounds a stupid question.


Having read through your links, it looks like I should now stick OSX onto the SSD, but does it complicate matters if I've already installed it on the HDD?

You need to get to the OSX Recovery menu in step 8 in the first link above, that will give you access to Disk Utility where you can format/install to the SSD.
