Hi guys im loving my W350 but on start up I get an error message saying 2101 error miniSata drive not detected.
It has also done this once whle in use which is more worrying.
I have taken the keyboard off, removed the 16gb mSata and replaced it, but it still is not being detected.
If anyone has any thoughts Id be really grateful.

Oh actually, after i put the drive back it it booted up and was visible in the device manager, but dissappeared when clicked on..
thanks for your thoughts.

also i have run the bios update mentioned in the microphone thread. the system rebooted successfully after the update proceeded but the miniSATA drive is not showing in the device manager.

Hi there, thanks for the response.
Im having trouble identifying the drivers as the drive isnt showing in the device manager anymore. While it briefly did show up aftrer the BIOS update reboot, it searched and said the drivers were correct but I didnt note the number..
is there a way i can find this out?
Also, is this problem generally caused by drivers rather than a faulty hardware etc? Ill hang fire on sending the drive back if maybe I can fix it..

Ive been scannig the boards and it seems everyone else hates the 16gb mSata too.
Has anyone ever solved this issue? im pretty amazed having dropped nearly 2grand on a laptop that it doesnt work straight out the box, and Lenovo support is useless. You cant even type in your serial numbers into their support page without getting an error.
