The needed steps are outlined in the quick-start guide. Basically you install the SSD and load the FirePower-software.

Then you need a license for the security-services. At http://www.cisco.com/go/license there are demo-licenses for FirePOWER, but only for the 5506 ... Not sure if there is a demo for you 5515-X available. Probably you have to buy the license at your preferred Cisco-reseller. There are different licence-combinations available like IPS, URL and AMP. In addition to that you need a FireSight management-Server that is available as a physical or virtual appliance.
