2101: Detection error on HDD2 (Mini SATA) in W530

2020-01-28, 3:06 AM

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo thinkpad W530 with a HDD and mSATA.

I recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10, not a fresh install, but an upgrade in place.

I am currently getting the following error when it boots. (not sure if this was happening before the window 10 upgrade).

--------------------------------

2101: Detection error on HDD2  (Mini SATA)

Press Esc to continue.

----------------------------------

After I hit Esc, the laptop continues to boot successfully.

 

After I started getting this error, I decided to replace my HDD with a SATA SDD.

I've tried changing the boot order in the BIOS to point to the SDD, but no luck.

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Alan

Hello,

 

Perhaps the mSATA SSD is loose?

 

Have you tried powering down the ThinkPad W530, removing the battery, opening the unit up, and carefully removing and then reinstalling the mSATA SSD?

 

Regards,
