T440p 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

Hello. I got this error each time after hard reset, or any non-standard unexpected poweroff.

"2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)".

 

I found workaround how to boot: each time in this situation i press F10 to load Diagnostic Utility at boot time, then see error message, press ESC to continue booting into diagnostic utility, and here I already see my hard drive. So just do nothing, quit from utility to restart laptop. And now it see hard drive and boot as usual.

 

BTW, if I boot from USB flash drive, and do hard reset, it throw same error but for m2 SDD instead of sata HDD0.

 

I have stock WDC WD10JPVX-08JC3T5 hard disk and stock SanDisk SSD U110 16GB.

Model of laptop Lenovo ThinkPad T440p 20AN0030RT. BIOS GLET83WW.

 

All with lastest firmware (respectively 05.01A05 and U21B001). Latest updated BIOS (2.37).

 

Please, suggest any appropriate solution, because I can't figure out this by googling by myself.

If you have a wrong combination of Chipset and IRST driver you may encounter those problems.

Is there any available known solutions for that?

 

BTW: just upgraded firmware from 05.01A05 to 05.01A55 from fwsh46.iso (fwsd33 utility didn't see new firmwares). Let's see, did it help.

Not sure that driver for Windows may be cause, because it depend only on is laptop was hard rebooted, for any os: Windows, Linux, OS X.

But I created own partitions on SanDisk SSD U110 16GB, and formated WD with GPT partitions and, boot it as UEFI. Surely, I have remove any additional lenovo or windows partitions. Not sure, may it be cause of such error.

Checked it. Sad, but flashing new 05.01A55 firmware doesn't help Smiley Sad

Error still present on hard reboot.
