T420SI 2101 ERROR after BIOS update

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

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

Re: T420SI 2101 ERROR after BIOS update

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...

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
