Voiding Warranty: Lenovo G580.

2012-12-24, 19:00 PM

I purchased a Lenovo G580, included with Windows 8, which I'm not particularly fond of. Would I be voiding the warranty if I formatted it's Hard Drive and installed Windows 7?

hi TheMophead,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community

You will not void the hardware warranty of your computer if you decide to downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7 but the support that you'll get with the pre-installed softwares & drivers will be limited only to the operating system that came with your computer. You can find more info regarding the warranty policies here - http://tinyurl.com/c5t63pj -

Be careful in wiping your hard drive partition as it may contain drivers or recovery files. Consider doing a backup, see http://tinyurl.com/c2zc8a5 on how to a recovery image.

Hope this helps
