Lenovo warranty if new operating system is installed??

2013-04-03, 9:05 AM

Hi,

 

I am planning to buy a lenovo essential laptop(G580) which comes with preinstalled Disk Operating System( DOS). After buying the machine, if I install a copy of an windows OS(win7/win8) or any other operating system, will my one year warranty get void??

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Welcome To Lenovo Community

 

The warranty is for the hardware, which is independent of operating system

 

So warranty will not be void for any hardware, except any damage is done to the hardware part

 

Please refer below link for more details

Hope This Helps

Cheers!!!

If this is true, then why do I have to pay £85 for Lenovo for repairing my laptop that has stopped working after I installed Linux on it (not even the EFI menu works)? I have just received an email from Medion Electronics UK to pay them for the repair!
