T450s can’t start. 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

2018-12-23, 11:19 AM

Hallo everybody, I hope someone could help me out here.

 

I was updating BIOS or something like that using the Lenovo service software.

Then my wife tried to shut down the computer, a window popped up asking her does she want to interrupt the update.

Then she clicked ‚yes‘ and shut it down.

Now I can’t start it anymore, with the error 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD).

 

What can I do now? Online I can’t find anything that really helps.

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

 

Best regards

Leo

Are you saying she tried to shut it down in the middle of the BIOS update?

I’m not sure. She said there was a pop-up asking her are you sure to stop the upgrade. I’m not sure if the lenovo system upgrade had finished the bios upgrade and continued to the next. But I guessed so. 

 

After two hours shut down, start and any possible tries the computer is now able to start again. And..... don’t ask me how and why....
