What about the os, can i use the 1tb for storage and put the os on the ssd and how? Without spending much, i only have a recovery disc nothing more.

Ok if you look at the link I sent you they have the Crucial MX200 250GB M.2 Type 2280 which is an MSATA SSD which means its smaller. I have an Alienware 18 that came with a 256 gb Msata and a one TB hd. I cloned the 256 GB SSD to a 1 TB SSD as my boot drive. I added a 750 gb HD so now I have a 1 TB SSD, 1 TB HD and a 750 gb HD I had laying around. I could even remove the optical drive and replace it with a HD or SSD.

According to the Crucial listing of compatible SSD's the AW 15 must have a MSATA and SATA drive capability. I would verify that with your specs.

Like I said when I did it I cloned the OS drive using Acronis True Image and the external USB drive case where I put the source drive.
If you try to just install Windows on the SSD i would remove the HD completely then when the OS is installed on the SSD you can put the HD back in.
