Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook
I keep getting a 2010 error on boot up. I tried to perform the harddrive update with IBMs FW updater but it keeps telling me that there is no FW to update. The hard drive is a Hitachi model # HTS541616J9AT00 which is on the IBMs list of H/Ds that will work with this laptop (IBM T43) after the FW update is performed.
Error code 2010 is definitely hard drive problem.
Did you get the firmware from the site below?
Link to hardware maintenance manual for reference:
Here's the fix straight from the maintenance manual:
If in the primary bay the customer is using a non-IBM or non-Lenovo hard disk drive (HDD), or an old generation IBM HDD which is not supported by this system, with the risk in mind, the customer can still use it by pressing ESC. If in the primary drive bay the customer is using a supported IBM/Lenovo HDD with an old firmware, the customer needs to update its firmware to the latest. The latest version is available at http://www.lenovo.com/think/ support
