I was able to do it based on xda steps, i got to install apps to the sdcard. Now the issue is I can't install 1st party apps like finance, travel, shop, etc that i uninstalled awhile back. It wont let me install to the sdcard. So i figured i change it back to the original directory to the c drive, but now it doesn't recognize at all. Anybody know how i can fix this? Can't seem to find a sollution, may have to do a reset of my surface which would suck.

Nevermind i found out the issue, there is a space in between Program Files. I made it Programfiles instead of Program files.
Anybody that runs into this issue, 1st party apps will not install onto sd.

I'm glad you fixed it, I haven't had any problems with it so far...
For anyone else interested in installing apps to the SD Card, I put up a video on how to do it:

I haven't had a problem with any of them on the sd card... I have noticed though that the Surface doesn't like reading/writing to the SD card at the same time, so if you're installing apps on to the SD Card it might slow down a little. It seems the biggest bottleneck in the Surface is Solid State Performance. With apps running off the SD card, the system itself runs so much better.

So i switched back to installing to the c drive and then the 1st party apps installed fine.
Ill try again when i get home tonight.

Ok, i fixed the issue. So in the c drive windowsapps folder, i had to go in there and delete the folders after installing the app. I would see like three different folders of bing, finance, etc related to 1st party apps. AFter i deleted, i was able to install onto the SD card.
Perhaps the surface was thinking duplicate installations. The folders remained after uninstalling the apps.

I can't seem to fix. I uninstalled Bing Finance. Then set Packageroot to sd card. Then tried to install bing Finance and it failed. I deleted the bing finance folders from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps and I still got install errors. I also did this with Microsoft Solitaire and it failed. Any new apps I have not installed seem to be fine. Seems like 1st party apps that I have already installed will not reinstall to sd card.

I was careful not to just wipe everything in the folder, if I the folders were labeled specifically to a 1st party app like bing,travel, finance, skydrive, etc. i deleted it.
Now seems to work for me. I was able to download Ms games too.
