I have two "easy" questions:
1) If I open my Lenovo for change HDD with an SSD, I invalidate waranty?
2) Do you know if is reasonable utilize a support caddy for have two drive rather than DVD lector?

Hi robertosangi ,
Generally checking on the hardware manual FRU list , CRU (customer replaceable parts) will not void any warranty but since most upgrade would end up opening the cover then it would not be a CRU anymore.
This should not void the warranty as long as the parts are not damaged during the process similar to these discussion.
For best practice , call in technical support to inform them so in cases of repair , you have it documented that you have your own SSD inside. Likewise warranty agreement maybe different from one location to another.
Optical drive port would most likely share same SATA port, so having additional storage would be a good option.
Check on the hardware manual from the support page for the guide and part's dimension and specification.
Hope this help answer your query.

I have this setup in my z51-70 a 525gb corsair mx300 SSD in the main slot and the orginal 1tb sshd in the odd bay with an adaptor. I had purchased a 2tb HDD to place in that bay however the 2tb would not be recognized over the odd bay port there seems to be a white list or a hard limit on that port also it ran the SSD much much slower having them swapped the other way.
As for warranty on a screw for the HDD cage inside my laptop was a tamper detection sticker that I had to break to get the last screw out. However my laptop is not customer serviceable at all no panels to remove for access. If yours is different then it should not be an issue I know some Thinkpad still have the panels to upgrade ram and such.
