2011-06-28, 1:59 AM

Hi guys,

 

I fitted a 64GB Sandisk P4 mSATA SSD today in my week old X220 4287CTO & get this error, I thought it maybe the bios causing the problem as reported in the forum but the threads I have read seem to be the SSD not being recognized at all.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah I am getting the exact same error 2101. Also X220 but 4286-CTO which I brought from US. The BIOS version is 1.17(highest I can find now).

Wonder if it is a compatibillity problem or simply the bios is not programmed rightly.

Error 2101 Detection error on HDD2 (Mini SATA)

2011-07-09, 8:18 AM

(Actually I have found another case with the same situation: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Error-2101-Detection-error-on-HDD2-mini-sata/m-p/467659

But none help found there.)

 

Hi,

 

I have installed a new Sandisk P4 mSATA SSD 32GB into my X220. I have already updated my BIOS to version 1.17. The comfiguration is as follow:

Intel Core i7-2620M Processor (2.7GHz, 4MB L3, 1333MHz FSB) USB 3.0
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64
12.5" Premium HD (1366x768) LED Backlit Display, Mobile Broadband Ready, 2x2 Antenna
4 GB DDR3 - 1333MHz (1 DIMM)
Keyboard US English
Fingerprint Reader
720p HD Camera
320 GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
No Micro Solid State Drive
ThinkPad Battery 29++ (9 cell)
Country Pack North America with Line cord & 65W AC adapter
Bluetooth 3.0
Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (2x2 AGN)
Integrated Mobile Broadband - Upgradable

 

I wonder if it is because of some hardware incompatible or just BIOS compatibillity problem.

 

If you have the same issus, please reply here so we may find out what is wrong.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the reply, I will try the legacy option today but don't hold out much hope! Hopefully the bios update will fix it.

I get the same error w/ a sandisk p4.  The sandisk works in several other machines.  An intel 310 does work in the x220, but why not the sandisk?  (this is sort of a double post as I mentioned this is the wrong thread the other night)
