Error 2101 Detection error on HDD2 (mini sata) in T530

Whenever I try shutting down my computer normally, it is extremely slow and displays the message: Error 2101  Detection error on HDD2 (mini sata). This causes some problems on my computer. My laptop is a Thinkpad T530 with Intel Core i7, 500 GB HDD, and 8 GB RAM. Any suggestions?

I shouldn't have an SSD on the computer, only a 500 GB HDD

1. Search for 'disk management' in 'Settings'

2. Click on the 'Create and Format hard disk partitions' option.

3. You should have a mSATA drive listed listed as Disk 1 (Disk 0 is your main hdd). Do you see it?

Nothing shows up in disk management, and it only says "Connecting to Virtual Disk Service...". As I was saying, these are some of the problems that occur on my computer.
