T440p ERROR 2101: Detection error on ssd1 (M.2)

#1 Post by kaddafi88 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 12:07 pm

Hello everyone!
I installed 240gb in my t440p ssd in slot m.2. I put Windows 10, everything works fine, but when you turn on the laptop, every time a message appears in the BIOS "2101: Detection error on ssd1 (M.2)".
This is a big problem, I can not use the sleep mode (the laptop just hangs on this error).
I tried different versions of the BIOS, the results did not work.
Please tell me what else you can try?

What brand/model SSD? AFAIK the only makers of 42mm M.2 SATA SSDs are the OK Transcend and a few 'not recommended' others.

Did you test with the SSD and no HDD? Did you do the install on the SSD while the HDD was installed? (These probably wouldn't have anything to do with that error but just want to be complete, making sure it's not a bootloader issue.)

It was KingSpec, but a couple of days ago it failed. Its size is now 132 kb.
Today I bought a new disc Transcent MTS420 for 240 GB. The laptop does not see at all. I am disappointed not to understand the reasons.

You need a SATA M.2/NGFF SSD, not the very similar PCIe M.2 NGFF.
T440/T440s/T440p need the 2242 type with a B-key.
E.g. this will work: MyDigitalSSD 240GB (256GB) Super Boot 2 (SB2) 42mm (2242) SATA III (6G) M.2 NGFF SSD Solid State Drive - MDM242-SB2-0256
