T450s: 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)


I got T450s with 500GB HDD which I replaced with 500GB SSD Crucial MX200.

After installing Windows 8.1 Pro, turning on bitlocker and restarting machine, I saw black screen with white text:


2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)


usually if I power off laptop and turn it on again, problem gets solved and I can start Windows, but then after restarting computer again the error is usually there again...


I've noticed that if I turn off the bitlocker, the problem doesn't appear (at least I wasn't able to encounter it without bitlocker).


I saw threads about similar problems with this and other thinkpad models as well as crucial and samsung SSDs, but none was actually reporting that it may be connected with bitlocker functionality... (I can't be 100% sure it is, but so far it looks like it).


any idea how I can fix it so that it works also when bitlocker is enabled?

I have exactly the same problem too with a T550 and a 1TB Crucial MX200.


Did you ever find a solution?


I'm tempted to return the MX200 and try a Samsung 850 EVO instead.
