SSD problem

Hello guys, I use windows 8 actually but anyway.. So here is my problem, I got one SSD when I installed windows I just had 480gb unlocated space, I located it but I don't have idea where SSD is.. I made 2 partitions, now I see that third came out. I guess that is SSD.. How I can check that?

Hello ikeas, Welcome to SF

A screenshot of your disk management would be helpful in this situation
click start
type "diskmgmt.msc" enter
take a snip of the window and upload it in your next post

this will show us all the drives connected to your computer and all the partitions on those drives

there are two disks connected to your machine, the first larger one is split into two partitions C & D drive, the C drive is the windows boot drive and the D drive is empty
the second disk is a smaller 60GB drive and is your F drive

both the D and F drive appear to be pretty empty, if you click on the start menu then on Computer on the right, you should be able to see the drives and their size/free space

My SSD is 60GB.. Then I guess my ssd is F? Is there any way I can check that?

You can download Speccy from Piriform.com.

It will identify your hard drives by brand name and model number.

Most likely, F is an SSD, but you have Windows on the larger 500 GB drive, which is probably not an SSD.

Most people with an SSD would put Windows on it. Why do you have Windows on the slower drive?

Yes you could, but.......

Did you download and run Speccy?

When you install Windows to a drive, that drive should be the only one connected. You should have disconnected the regular hard drive.

There's something wrong if you could not select the SSD. I would figure that out first.

You could make an image of the HDD and restore the image to the SSD. Or you could clone the HDD installation to the SSD.

It may be better to just start over and do a clean install to the SSD, but you need to find out why you can't select the SSD.
