T420SI 2101 ERROR after BIOS update

2013-05-24, 18:27 PM

Hi,

 

I just updated BIOS ver. from 1.30 to 1.37. Had no problem with it. The system restarted and got the message that " 2101: Detection error on HDD2 (mini SATA)" 

This is a Crucial M4 256Gb SSD, which I'm using since 5 month. 

Changed it back to my old KINGSTON 64GB SSD , and it works. I've downloaded BIOS ver 1.3 , downgraded the system, but the problem still exists.

It boots without any problem with the Kingston , but not with the Crucial. 

Currently I don't have another computer to test the Crucial SSD if it's broken, but I think it's rather BIOS related. 

Plese advise what to do now, because I had all my work on that SSD. 

 

Regards,

Gabor

Hi,

 

I've contacted crucial about this and got this anser : http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD-Knowledge/Why-did-my-SSD-quot-disappear-quot-from-my-system/ta-p/65215

Tried it many times with BIOS 1.36 but no succes. After then I changed back to BIOS 1.30, did the power cycle again, and BINGO. 

I noticed that with BIOS 1.36 the HDD LED was off after power on,(idling in BIOS) but with BIOS 1.3 it was lit all the time (until ~ 20 minutes). 

I guess this problem was generated by the BIOS update... But need to have a buggy SSD... 

I've made a firmware update on the drive, hope it will work now. I'm not brave enough to try to upload BIOS 1.37 again. 

 

Thanks,

Gabor

Contact Crucial. If another drive works then it may be dying and the error is a result of the status.
