X1 Carbon - "2101: Detection error on HDD2 (Mini SATA)"

I ordered the mSata mini 128GB card to go into the half size slot under thge keyboard.  However when I boot I get:  "2101: Detection error on HDD2 (Mini SATA)".  I thought that a half size drive would work, as it does it my Lenovo W520.  However it appears the BIOS does not recognize it.  It does however recognize it in my W520.

 

Has anyone else successfully added a second drive internally to the X1 Carbon Touch?

Hello and welcome,

 

No personal experience here, but I do see this note on the page you linked:

 

Note: Only works with systems with mSATA standard connector. NOT compatible with Mini PCIe slot for WWAN/wireless cards

 

The way I read the Hardware Maintenance Manual  that slot is WWAN only, not a WWAN/mSATA combo slot.  Could be wrong.

Thanks for the quick reply. I thought I had read in one of the pdf's that it was a WWAN/mSATA combo slot. Regardless, now I cant find that doc, and I would agree if this s the case, I will return it.

I also ordered the 128gb sdxc class 10- and it works great!
