Standard Warranty only covers the hardware - loading Linux does not void the warranty.

If you do have to send in the computer for repair, Linux is not included in the coverage.

If the OS has to be reloaded, you get back a computer with the original Windows installed (but not your Linux).

Standard Warranty, that is, the warranty included with the device, typically covers hardware as explained in the Warranty document.  Optional Care Pack warranties differ by contract.
