Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I keep getting the message 2010 - PC Desktops


Answers :

After a BIOS upgrade or installation of a new hard drive, the following error message may appear at POST: \015\012\015\012 ERROR
\015\012\015\012 2010:\015\012Warning: Your internal hard disk drive (HDD) may not function correctly\015\012on this system. Ensure that your HDD is supported on this system and\015\012that the latest HDD firmware is installed. Press <Esc> to continue
\015\012\015\012
\015\012 Press <F1> to Setup
\015\012\015\012 The system appears to boot normally after escape is pressed and the operating system will load.
Solution\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 There are three possible workarounds to eliminate the error: \015\012\015\012 \015\012
    \015\012
  1. Update the hard drive firmware to the latest level. Download the hard drive firmware update, and then apply to your hard drive.
    \015\012 Note: This update requires a floppy disk drive.
  2. \015\012
  3. Replace the hard drive with one supported by the system being used.
  4. \015\012
  5. Use\015\012the hard drive, producing the 2010, error in the Ultrabay of the system\015\012or a docking station with the second hard drive adapter instead. The\015\012interface to the Ultrabay is parallel ATA. For more information visit, ThinkPad Second Hard Drive Adapter for Ultrabay Slim - Overview
\015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012\015\012\015\012 \015\012Additional information\015\012 \015\012 \015\012This error is purposely generated to alert the user to potential\015\012problems with diagnostic or copy tools. There are known issues with\015\012several of these listed below. \015\012
    \015\012
  1. Disk Fitness Test (DFT) version 3.xx provided by\015\012Hitachi GST which uses vendor specific commands on the hard drive.\015\012These may not be correctly interpreted since they must pass through the\015\012serial to parallel ATA bridge. However, version 4.00 or later of the\015\012Disk Fitness Test (DFT) will work.
  2. \015\012
  3. HDDTEST version 0.28 by Hitachi GST does not function properly for similar reasons. Instead, use HDDTEST version 0.29 or later.
  4. \015\012
  5. DOS-based\015\012copy tools may function slowly or produce incorrect output,\015\012specifically previous versions of Norton/Symantec Ghost. These versions\015\012are not compatible with the Serial-ATA interface of the Intel ICH6M\015\012chip set. Documentation on this problem may be found at\015\012www.symantec.com. It is recommended to use either a newer version of\015\012Ghost, Norton Ghost 2003 (version 2003.789 or later) or Symantec Ghost\015\0128.0 or later, or to use the -FNI switch when invoking Ghost from the\015\012command prompt (For example, Ghost.exe -FNI with the current version of Ghost).
\015\012 Other disk copy tools and related applications, such as some backup programs, may also have similar behavior. \015\012\015\012 The\015\012hard drives shipped in the affected systems will not display the\015\012message because they already have firmware that recognizes this new\015\012Serial ATA bridge chip. However, a similar drive from an earlier\015\012ThinkPad system or an OEM drive might cause the error message to be\015\012displayed. Customers may also notice the POST error message after\015\012applying a ThinkPad BIOS update if a drive without the firmware update\015\012is installed in the system. Some early systems were shipped with a\015\012system BIOS version that did not provide this POST error message.\015\012Updated BIOS has been released to provide this informative POST error\015\012message to users.
