T430s - 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

2015-12-29, 5:38 AM


I have SSD installed into mSATA slot and 9mm HDD installed into ultrabay slot with HDD adapter. But I REMOVED the original 7mm HDD and now there is nothing in regular hard drive slot. After restart, there is a couple of beeps and error message " 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD) press ESC to continue", and booting proceeds only after I press ESC. Before that there was no such error. Laptop still boots well from SSD and HDD in ultrabay works well, but this error during startup is annoying at least.

Laptop Thinkpad T430s. 

Is there any way to disable SATA port that corresponds to HDD0 (may be in BIOS?) or any other way to get rid of the error?

The HDD in Ultrabay slot is 9mm, so I think there is no way to fit it into main HDD slot.
