2100 hard drive detection error

My W530 has just started displaying the detection error, however, Windows can still see the device, as well as the BIOS

 

Windows shows it as the actual hard drive model.

 

however, the BIOS shows it as DISK.

 

does this mean the drive is failing(again), or is it the SATA controller?

The mSATA SSD or the hard drive?

The 500gb one. Msata shows up as drive 1.

It might be possible that the 500gb chose a random moment to fail that just so happened to coincide with me installing windows 10

Re: 2100 hard drive detection error

Probably a random fluke, though I don't know how it could happen. Maybe clean the SATA connectors on both sides?

Called lenovo, they replaced the hard drive. worked fine with linux, windows 7 and windows 8. Installed the Tech preview, the hard drive warning immediately came back.

Re: 2100 hard drive detection error

the issue is a known bug. for anyone else having issues(shuld probably post in the windows 10 section) the problem is caused by the sata driver enabling power states on the hard drive that the bios doesnt support.

 

seems to have been patched in build 9879
