The easiest option here will be to put it back into the original system and clone it from there.

Is the original system operational?

Everything is working great, new computer. The OS and programs are on the ssd. I need to connect the target drive so I can clone it using Acronis.

You should be able to get an Acronis bootable USB Key, get a USB hard drive or M2 enclosure for another SSD , boot with Acronis and use its menu to create the clone

You need to have a m.2 usb reader like the one below.

Backup the system to a USB drive. Then replace the drives and restore from backup using a Recovery media for backup program. No additional adapters are needed.

You will need an adapter anyway unless you are going to dispose or sell your current 128GB M.2 SSD from Lenovo.

Darn my last comment wasn't posted.

I don't wish to backup to a USB drive as if HD or OS (see next post) failure I would simply wish to swap out the drive.

Awesome assistance...just what I needed.
Thanks,

Hey Jackie Man...the suggested adapter will not work with PCIe solid state drives. I am finding it hard to find one...do you know where I may be able to?
