I would like to replace the default SSD (120GB) of my Lenovo Y700-15ISK 80NV laptop with a larger one.. The problem is, that Windows is installed on the current SSD.
With the help of OneKey Recovery I have created a backup file of Windows (which I have resetted to factory state) on a USB stick. Is this sufficient for a reinstallation of Windows on the new SSD?
Also, I would like to know whether replacing the SSD would have any effects on my warranty.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Community Forums.
About creating a recovery media as discussed here, try to test it first if it works after installing the new SSD.
This would assure you that you have a working installer.
Generally upgrading parts should not void the warranty as long as nothing gets damaged during and after the process but it would be better to call in technical support in your region for clarification. Similar discussion here and here.
Hope this help answer your query.
