As I said, I have never used that drive but I would expect that it would work. Boot into the BIOS and under security/I-O Port access, make sure WWAN is not disabled. I would also look under the windows Disk Manager screen to see if it needs to be initialized. Beyond that, I have no suggestions.

It is enabled, it has a blue light on, so it looks like it is powered, but system does not recognize it. The chinese seller is communicating with me, but so far just general recommendations. I am looking for USB to M.2 adapter to check the darn thing other way.

Good news. Problem solved
This is what worked for me. Because I did not see the 1T SSD as second drive on the boot screen of W540, I decided to take out my primary 2.5 inch SATA SSD, which is easy to take out, basically just the 2 screews on the cover and one more screw on HD enclosure.
The I removed the batter, took out the power, waited a bit and put battery and power in and tried to boot the W540. On the boot screen it showed the boot screen, I went to bios and run a storage test and it showed that the 1T SSD is OK.
I then put back the 2.5 inch SSD and run the free EaseUS Todo Backup and Cloned the 250G SSD to 1T. I booted the computer with F12 option, it showed the 1T SSD and computer booted from it. Now I will run the Partition magic to fix the 750G of free space on the SSD, but this is not a big deal. Thank you for your help and support. On the Amazon website, whete I bought it, is even a page wiht list of compatible computers and the W540 is on it. I did not see this before I bought it.
I was also impressed with a support from KingSpec, Mellisa English was good and she was responding promptly
