8.1 installed on hdd not ssd on xps8700

Hi guys-I just fired up my new 8700 and to my disappointment discovered that windows is installed on my 2t hard drive and not on the 256 ssd. Is this normal? what's the point? doesn't that defeat the purpose or I missing something? Should I send it back or try and install windows on the ssd? how hard would that be?  thanks

Yes its setup incorrectly to amend it see the instructions here:

You need to carry out Steps 1,2,3 and 5.
