Answers :

I had the same problem on Toshiba M30. The hard drive was good since I was able to install Windows on it, but then when I went to boot from the HD I got the 0201 failure. I then figured it must have something to do with the controller. The way I finally got it to work was to remove the jumper from the HD which was set to "cable select" and thereby force it to be the "master". Could possibly be that by removing and reinstalling the HD that the pins got clean, but I had tried that a few times and it did not help.
IDE #0 is your primary hard drive.

Toshiba's System Errors indicate that the error 0201 Failure IDE #0\015\012may be caused by bad contact points where the drive plugs into the laptop chassis. Toshiba recommends pulling the hard drive in and out several\015\012times to clean up the male/female contact points.

Toshiba also said that if this doesn't work to contact one of their service centers for assistance.

The contact points solution rarely works, but is worth a try. Most likely, your hard drive failed and needs to be replaced.
