No. However the SSD, unless it's a Lenovo-labelled unit, won't be covered by the remaining T420 warranty.

 

Also if you encounter any operating system or device driver related issues you're on your own. Of course you can always look for help here ;)

 

BTW make sure that the T420

1. isn't stolen. (Call Lenovo and local police with the model and serial number. Ask them it has been reported stolen.)

2. you are given any power-on, HDD, supervisor, etc. passwords that may be set

3. Win8 is genuine and that you have the proper media and license key.
