Intel X18-m (160Gb) failure in X301

I tried to replace the stock (64Gb) SSD in my x301 with a new intel X-18-m G2. The drive works flawlessly in any other computer (desktops) I have tried but fails in the x301: error 2100: HDD0 initialization error (3)

I made sure both BIOS and firmware (for the SSD) are up to date and that BIOS was set for compatibilty mode for the drive. Any help would be gretly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

I also could not get the Intel 18 series SSD to work; any news on this front? anyone from Lenovo, perhaps?

 

thanks

I just put the same drive in my X301 this morning and it's working fine. I left the sata setting on AHCI. I did run diskpart first and cleaned the drive and created a primary partition. After that I used the recovery disks to reinstall. Everything thing went smoothly and I'm getting a 7.8 on the WEI score!
