Error 2100 - hard drive error (samsung 950 pro)

I have an x1 carbon 4th gen. I bought my laptop and upgraded the hard drive to the samsung 950 pro. Unfortunately, my laptop does not seem to recognize the new SSD. Can anyone help me here? I am extremely frustrated to be honest and I have no idea what to do. Thanks.

The laptop needs to have PCie 3.0and NVMe if it does not then Samsung 950 pro won't work in your laptop.

Samsung 950 PRO has PCIe 3.0 x4 (up to 32Gb/s) NVMe 1.1 interface. So, that's not a cause of the issue.


check out the drive firmware version and its upgrade availability. I assume you've bought the drive in the aftermarket, so the fw upgrade package once it'll be published on the Lenovo support site isn't suitable.
