Trying to upgrade H/D on IBM T43 laptop, get 2010 error on
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.

Re: Trying to upgrade H/D on IBM T43 laptop, get 2010...
Error code 2010 is definitely hard drive problem.
Did you get the firmware from the site below?
Link to hardware maintenance manual for reference: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/39t2393.pdf
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

restart the system and continue to press F2 ,so tht u can enter into the BIOS settings,change the boot option to cd/dvd...if still the problem persists clean your dvd case once or continue with another cd/dvd...
Make sure harddrive is set for CS check jumper on drive, Make sure no pins are bent on hard drive, Stop the computer at the bios setup and check the bios is set right..If all this fails you could have an motherboard issue, since you have mention that "the drive has been reimaged"
At this point i would call your Current Operating system dead. If you can boot into XP and move and documents or pictures you want to keep onto a USB drive. Once this is done, I can not guarintee the files will not be infected but, if you MUST keep some of your files, it is worth a try.
From power off, Boot your T43, pressing the Blue IBM ACCESS button when the screen first turns on. just keep pressing it until the screen turns to Loading IBM Access and recovery. This is a hidden partition on your hard drive, (safe from that pesky worm and trojans) which contains the backup files needed to completely restore your comp to factory default.
In here you will want to select continue to get the initial screen to go away, navigate over to the left hand bar, and one of the options will allow you to completely restore to factory settings, select it, and run through the pop-ups. once you have done this it will take about 40 minutes to run, and boot up with a CLEAN and fresh version of XP, run Windows update and start installing your programs you lost. Best of Luck.
Now it's hard drive is broken so when i change the new hard drive Hitachi 160GB it display the message as below.
Could you help me to terminate this error message.
2010: Warning: Your internal hard disk drive (HDD) may not function correctly on this system. Ensure that your HDD is supported on this system and that the latest HDD firmware is installed. Press <Esc> to continue
I try to update firmware of the harddrive but still appear the message the same.
If it was dropped on the floor, more than likely, that spinning hard drive is damaged and has failed. The computer caqnnot load the operating system. You will definitely have to replace the hard drive, and hope the data is recoverable. Keep in the mind, the hard drive is constantly spinning, and any shock at 30G's or more can be fatal.
Picture moving a turntable while its playing, accept, instead of spinning at 33.3 rpm's its spinning at 5400 rpms, faster than most car engines......
