I have a Thinkpad Yoga which today was turned on while I was away (i.e. computer was not in use). When returning back the screen said "2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)". Windows must have crashed (probably just another one of those faulty Lenovo drivers) and then the system couldn't boot up.
Everything seems alright after a hard reboot but I'm afraid my SSD drive has gone bad.
Found a support document of the error on Thinkpads with Samsung SSD, but mine have a LiteOn. Can anyone help me find out why this happened and if anything is wrong with my SSD?
The support document I'm talking about: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht082504

I have the same problem on a Lenovo Thinkpad, it does it once a day
One way to fix it: Once it boot up wrong, press esc and the in the menu select the "Lenovo diagnosis" or something like this, once you see your 2 drives, you can reboot and it will work.
When I launched a usb key while having the 2100 error, only the liteon ssd was detected... Might be a Hard Drive problem? (my thinkpad is only 3 months old)
I tried updating my Bios, and I reinstalled windows. No differrences, still having a bug once every 2 or 3 reboot
I'm trying to fix it soon and if no way, i'm going to make the warranty work

Happened today again -- this time the power had to be turned off. Otherwise the machine couldn't boot at all.
What I noticed is that Windows (8.1) seemed to log off just before, as if it suddenly automatically shut down. At least I noticed the solid color background you usually see during shutdown or updating.
Or the HDD (SDD) simply disconnected itself and caused Windows to crash really badly.
Anybody else had this?

Tried a firmware update for the Samsung SSD:
Let's see if that did the trick. The log seems to indicate that it didn't update anything, though. The updater runs so quickly and doesn't have a UI, so it's a bit tricky to tell. The firmware version ([EXT09L6Q]) of my SSD (Model: SAMSUNG MZ7TE256HMHP-000L7) isn't included in the updater, so perhaps it didn't change anything.
It's interesting, though, that older firmwares exhibited this same behavior.
As far as I know, there's no firmware update available newer than what I have.

had the same error and found out, that the cable from Motherboard to HDD controller was not plugged in correctly.
After plugin correctly the error disappeared.
Hope to help you.

Glad you got it sorted out. I updated my BIOS and haven't yet at least had any problems. Hopefully I don't have to open up the machine. In case I do, was the Yoga more difficult/easier to open than previous Thinkpads?
