X201t SSD Samsung 830 Error 2100


As stated in the title I have an X201t and changed the stock HDD for a Samsung 830 Series 256gb SSD. At first everything worked fine. I installed the OS and everything was peachy. And then all of a sudden I couldn't boot the drive anymore. I keep on getting "Error 2100: HDD initialization failed".

I found the following link, while researching the problem:

But since the X201t is not mentioned and the Samsung 830 Series isn't mentioned, I didn't want to fool around with it.

I have seen different people with the same problem on this board, but haven't really deduced if there is another solution other than sending the hard drive back ?

The drive is also not recognized when hooked up in the adapter and plugged in via usb. (even with another running system).

Any ideas for a next step? Or is sending the drive back the best way to go?

Thanks and greetings from Germany,
