The first gen Carbon, like yours, uses a non-standard SSD so you can only use ones designed for that machine.

No.  It won't fit or work.  The connector is different.

As I said before, the gen 1 x1 carbon uses a non-standard format SSD.  Unfortunately, that means the drives have fewer options and tend to be smaller and sometimes expensive.  I know of nothing bigger than 256 GB.  Here is the parts list:
