SOURCE: i can't boot up. it display error 2100: Hard disk

This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in BIOS or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive.

Try this:

Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected properly.
Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.

- Floppy drive
- CD drive
- Hard drive

Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.

Boot from either your emergency repair disk, your bootable Windows CD, or your bootable restore CD.
Once boot attempt to repair Windows. If you're able to repair Windows remove the disks and reboot the computer.

If the above fails:

Verify the connections are properly connected to the computer if the hard drive was recently installed or the computer was moved.

If all connections are setup properly and all the above recommendations have been attempted, it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad and it will need to be replaced.

Let us know how it works out.

How do I correct Error 2100:HDDO Hard disk drive initialization error 1


I would remove the corrupt drive and connect via USB to another computer running Win7. See if the computer sees the drive. If it does, put it back in the laptop and try booting again. If not, go to Control Panel, disc management and create a drive letter. Doesn't matter what it is. It should then boot OK. If not, replace the drive.

Lenovo r 61, type- 8933 am 7 error 2100 hddo error (1) pxe-e61 media test failure pxe-m0f exiting broadcom pxe rom


Hi chetan5karma,

I see that you are having issues with you Thinkpad R61 Laptop getting an Error 7, PXE-e61 Media test Failure.

I Believe the Error that you are receiving means that the Hard Drive in your Laptop is not responding anymore or is not anymore fixable, the error that your mentioned states that your "HDD" Hard Drive needs to be replaced on your Laptop there is no other way to fix this error you Hard Drive is already undetected and most probably not bootable anymore.

You can google pxe-e61 there will be many possible causes but all fall in replacing the Hard Drive, the only option your can try with this concern is removing your Hard Drive and reconnecting it back again, this is to see if the Laptop will detect the Hard Drive again or not.

Also you can try reformatting the Hard Drive using a Windows Installation Disc to see if it will be detected by Windows.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

T60 will not boot up


There appears to be a BIOS update or two available for the Lenovo TP T60. One of the updates makes reference to this error code, but the verbage afterwards is a little different to that posted here. Mind you, my recommendation is that you should stay on target with BIOS updates because they are fixing problems with the computer, even if you don't realise you are having those problems!

Please go here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-64462.html

Press Ctrl F and search for 2100. This tells you which update fixed a problem with ERROR 2100: At the bottom of this page you will find that these updates are for all regions. You will also find the link to the BIOS update utility.

My experience of BIOS updates on the Thinkpad range is that you have to undock the laptop prior installing the BIOS update, and ensure the laptop has a constant power support - NOT BATTERY. Ensure you read the on-screen notes carefully.

Hope this helps.
