Can't install OSX on Kingstone HyperX FurySSD

So I wanted to speed up my Mac and I went and bought the Kingstone HyperX Fury 240GB, and I replaced it with the Optical Drive with the enclosure. I tried Installing El Capitan from a bootable usb, after choosing the SSD it goes on installing and then gives me the This OSX can't be installed on your mac. I have used the correct format and partition for SSD. I still have my HDD at its place, its a 500gb 5400rpm model. It installed perfectly on HDD and after the installation was done, I could use the SSD to copy files on it. The only conclusion I am at now is, is the SSD not supported for installing OSX on my mac? If yes I'll go get something slower like Kingstone SSDNow V300 or something.

Please let me know, thank you!

Try switching the drives locations and see if it will function on the main BUS (which is where it should really be installed).

For reference: OWC Data Doubler. Review the note in Red. FYI: your system is a MacBookPro8,1

mate you need to format the drive first in OSX journalised format otherwise it won't work.

remove drive, attach to a external chip, plug into MAC, disk utility, format drive to OSX journalised, reinsert SSD to Mac, boot into "option" ...

For reference review this question on what the real issue is: Mac Mini only runs 1.5 gigabit on SSD
