Hello,

 

This usually means the drive is not installed correctly.  Power down, very carefully remove the drive and disconnect the cabling, and then very carefully reassemble.  The drive should now be detected as normal.

Hello. This is unfortunately not the cause. have tried these. Do you have any other suggestions for me?

Can it be the disk?

If the drive is installed properly it should show in the bios. Can you confirm if it is listed?

Did you find any useful information? Everyone in the Lenovo forums can thank other members by clicking on the kudos star to the lower left.

Sorry very late reply from me. I talked with lenove and they may think that it was the acctuale hd that was the problem.  but Now I knowe it is not. 

 

In the Bios only Oginal M2 disk and a the optinoal m2 disk shows. 

I have to day changched the optinal m2 disk to a new samsung 960 and try the m2 disk (intel) I have used for some time in a Sata adapter. Still the same Fault 2103 when power up. 

 

Is it not possible to have 2 m2 disk and one 2,5" ssd?

Have you tried running Lenovo Solution Center or Lenovo Diagnostics Tool Lite on your main HDD?

There is also a diagnostics using F10 when  booting the system, you can run hardware tests from.

Hello,

 

My ThinkPad P50 is configured with two M.2 NVMe and one 2.5" SATA SSDs, so I know this is a working configuration for me on my ThinkPad P50.  The SATA cabling for the ThinkPad P50 is very thin/fine, at least compared to the previous W-series, and requires exact placement in order for the drive to be correctly recognized.

 

If you are certain the cabling is good, you might want to try using the 2.5" SATA SSD with a USB to SATA adapter in order to verify the ThinkPad P50 can read it.

 

Regards,

Hello.

I have today got a Samsung 840 pro ssd because Lenovo support told me to try a qualety disk.

I still get the same fault.

 

but I tryed to take out the M2 disk in slot 1 and connect the samsung ssd and the P50 red it right away. 

I have windows on  M2 Slot 0 Disk.

 

when I sun solution center I do not get any fault.

But now I knowe that the disk is working and that the cabel is good.

 

Can it be that windows need to be on the 2,5" disk or any HW fault with the 2,5"bay?

it may be faulty cable you get with kit needed to connect 2.5" SSD. with 2.5" kit you get two cables ("left" and "right" turned) - try another one to check if it helps.
