When you say "will not boot", can you let me know exactly what happens?
Does green LED on power button come on?
Do you see the ThinkPad logo screen?
Can you press F1 to enter BIOS setup?

It means that the SSD is not bootable.
What brand/model SSD did your shop install?
I recommend that you take it back to the shop that installed the new SSD and ask them to support you.

I bought windows 8 .1 machine from factory. Then I had local shop install 8.1 on larger ssd. I just performed latest bios update and now machine will not boot. I am sure this is uefi related but I am not knowledgable in that area. The boot parameter returned to me by the shop was "legacy only" and secure boot was disabled.
Since doing the BIOS update are the settings still as you noted above? You also didn't mention which SSD is now installed in the system.
Just as an aside, installing Windows 8.1 in legacy mode isn't exactly optimal. Were there any particular reasons for this? Just being curious.
