2103: detection error on ssd0 (m.2) => Samsung 950 Pro M.2 512GB

2017-02-04, 3:51 AM

I have a X1C 3rd (2015). it runs a win10 Pro 64bit and works well.

I bought a SSD - Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB
and I tried to replace with it from thr original SSD - SAMSUNG MZHPV256HDGL-00000 SM951 AHCI M.2 SSD 256GB

Once I install the new SSD, everytime when it boot it up, a message showed;

" 2103: detection error on ssd0 (m.2)

  Press ESC to continue. "

It seems SSD detection failed.

Then I tried to update X1's firm to the latest version 1.16.

But the situation had not been changed.  Still 2103 error showed.

As I saw someone's trial such as "Disabel the battery, charger and wait a several minutes and then tried, but no change...
Help me to get this situation out....

Hello,

 

I've never used a ThinkPad X1 Carbon, but  I've seen a similar error message appear when the NVMe SSD was not correctly installed into the M.2 slot on the ThinkPad's system board.

 

Try carefully removing the SSD, and re-inserting it so the card is completely centered and all of its contacts make full contact with the slot, screw it back in, and put the battery back in and power up.

 

Does the system now recognize the SSD correctly?

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

If the system was booting off the previously installed SSD, then I would suspect something wrong with this new one.

 

Do you have another computer you can test the new SSD in?

The 950 Pro is NVMe right? I don't think the 3rd gen X1 BIOS has NVMe boot capability. The 4th gen X1 has NVMe boot capability. While on desktops you can usually add the NVMe module (say from the 4th gen) to the 3rd gen BIOS I have not seen this accomplished to modern Lenovo BIOSes.

 

The original SM951 is the AHCI version (H - MZHPV) not the NVMe version (V - MZVPV) - they are both connected by PCIe but expose a different programming interface to the host.

 

So you're limited to pretty much the AHCI SM951 and a few other AHCI PCIe M.2 SSDs.

 

If you can boot off something else (!) the OS will have no problem using the SSD as 2nd drive.

Yes it is NVMe.  Thanks for the reply.  I was able to see the drive when I booted off a linux live CD and install the OS on it.  So unfortunatly it looks like I repurpose this drive in something else, and shop for a larger AHCI compatible drive.

 

Thanks!

AFAIK there's also Kingston HyperX Predator, Plextor PX-512M6E that are AHCI.
