SOLVED as well, Thanks x220forme!
My error message was the same but due to a BIOS update so I needed different steps to fix.
What happened: Updated my X1 BIOS today
Step-by-step details to resolve:
Since my configuration was different here is what I had to do:
If you still have problems with different scenarios, please reply and I'll try to help pinpoint why this happens with your specific config. I dealt with this issue many times, on many X1's after upgrading the SSD to Crucial and Transcend 512GB SSDs.
Disable the battery, charger.
Remove the drive. It's for the safety as I mentioned, to prevent the system to freeze during the flasing process. That'll save laptop to be breaked.
Once the flashing process will complete, laptop should be powered off itself.

I got the same issue on my X1 Carbon 2nd Gen. I have tried to follow all the steps above but I am still getting the error.
Need to fix this issue asap. Please help.

I have done a BIOS update to 1.16 and it still boots up with the 2103: Detection error on SSD0 (m.2).
I've also done the steps of disabling things in the BIOS as previously posted, but it still boots into the same as above.
I'm using a brand new Samsung 960 m.2 SSD for a brand new installation for Windows 10 Pro.
The Laptop in question is a 3rd generation touchscreen version of the X1 Carbon series
Any help would be helpful

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1 gen3 and received the 2103 SSD m.2 error.
I have installed a new SSD, updated the bios and receive the same message.
I boot Linux and windows from USB sticks install the operating system and after restart the same 2103 error.
