First you will need to clone your HDD to your new SSD.

Once that is done, remove your old HDD and boot from your new SSD.

Then, shut the system down and reconnect your HDD.

Wipe it and repartition it.

or you do a clean install of the os on the ssd and then just pop in the bios and change the boot order

I realized I forgot to ask:
How big is your SSD and how big is your HDD?

How much data is on your HDD? Do you have more than 500GB on it?

not unless you install the os on the hdd by accident, this step usually includes the formatting of said drive.

Once you are booted from your ssd you can manage what files you want on the ssd simply by moving them over. Also you can get rid of the os installation on the hdd afterwards

Then you should just do a fresh install of Windows on your SSD.
