There is no easy way to do this to my knowledge.
Its recommend to fresh install the OS to the SSD while the hard drive is not connected. Make sure your ssd's sata port type is set to ahci in the bios.

How big is the ssd and how much space is being used on the hdd?

Couldn't you just clone the drive ??

Would this work ?

Nope, you can't pick and choose when you clone or migrate.
