Will installing Linux void the warranty?


 Will installing Ubuntu on my Ideapad Y550 void the warranty? (Even if I keep Windows 7 on it?) Will I be able to send it in for repair, and not have to worry about them not being able to fix it because it runs Linux along with Windows?




Installing Linux or any other OS other than the original preload will not void the warranty, however it may limit the degree of assistance that support can provide until you return to the preloaded configuration.
