Re: 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

2016-01-29, 16:48 PM

I am trying to install a custom Win7 64bit image on an X250 with 256gb ssd. I have received 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD) twice now. 

 

This is on a brand new drive from Lenovo, the original would not boot into Windows so I had it replaced. Now, what do I have to do in order to complete the reimage to this drive?

When I have had this issue it was due to the SSD being stuck in Hibernation mode. I was able to go into BIOS and change SATA to Compatibility, Save and then reboot. This would "wake" the drive back up. The PC would then BSOD due to the SATA setting. Go back into BIOS and change SATA back to AHCI and all is good.

I am also having this error on several brand new Lenovo X250's as well.  we recently purchased a batch of 5 brand new X250's and 3 out of 5 of them are giving us this error after the users received the machines and used them for a couple of days.  On previous batches we had almost 10 lenovo X250's out of 30 that had bad motherboards and were replaced (not repaired) by Lenovo because the wait time on motherboards was so long due to the amount of defects. I am hoping the X260's do not have these quality issues.

In response to customer reports of intermittently receiving POST 2100 HDD Detection Error messages on X250 ThinkPads, Lenovo has made a solution available.

 

If you are experiencing this issue, please contact Lenovo Service for support and reference Service TIP #SF16-T0033/ HT118152. The system will need to be serviced.

 

Thank you,

Hi!

Is there a way to update the driver while having this 2100: Detection error on HDD0? Because some documents on my broken SSD are very important.
Somehow with a flash drive containing windows/Linux?

Greetings
Robert

Hello,

 

My understanding is that the computer needs to be sent into Lenovo for servicing, so it may not be something that is solved via a software update.

Umm... yeah, no...

Same issue on a T430. Have tried with several drives. The Samsung 840 EVO, a WD Scorpio, the Seagate Momentus Thin the machine shipped with... Alll are hard drives I've tested and work fine, but this machine (T430) shows this error every time. I've played around with BIOS settings, I've tried going back to the factory settings... Nothing.

I would totally try bios updates, and/or driver updates, but I have no OS. I'm trying to install Windows 7 Pro (as per licence)... 

Nothing does the trick.

Thanks! My coworker's browser hanged, so she restarted the PC and ended up with "detection error on hdd0 (main hdd)". I ultimately tried your suggestion and after going back to AHCI her x230 worked again.
