Detection Error 2100 - Lenovo X240 with Crucial M500 SSD

I have a new Lenovo X240 out of the box.  I immediately upgraded with a Crucial M500 SSD 240mb drive.  The computer is running a fresh install of Windows 7 64-bit. The BIOS on the laptop is the most current.  The firmware on the M500 is the most current.  It seems that every several times I start or reboot the system I receive "DETECTION ERROR 2100".  After powering off the machine and powering it on again the computer will boot to Winddows.

 

I have seen numerous posts about this issue between Crucial vs. Lenovo.  I've tried every suggested fix to no avail.  I have tried the configuration using an identical, brand new M500 SSD with the same results.  Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions,.

If you read my original problem description - it has absolutely nothing to do with the problem in the URL that you posted.

 

I can boot to Windows, Windows runs fine.   Occasionally, the "Detection Error 2100" stops the boot, but repowering fixes the issue and boots to Windows normally.

 

If you Google "Detection Error 2100", you will see numerous results of a glitch between Lenovo Thinkpad computers and Crucial M500 SSD Drives.

 

I am posting back as the issue does persist.

Hi Mrtree,

 

Thank you for replying back!

 

I am sorry to hear that the issue still persist.

 

I request you to provide us with the MTM number of the system, and details of BIOS version and SSD firmware version which you have installed on your system. So that we will verify and assist you further on that.

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
