Will opening laptop void warranty?

EliteBook 820 g3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

 

I recently bought my elitebook 820 g3, with a 512gb boot SSD for some scientific work which requires a large SSD. However, I need additional storage on a large capacity HDD; and so want to install a new drive into the laptop.

 

Will opening up the laptop to perform this upgrade void my warranty?

 

 

Cheers,

Stefan

Not at all. 

 

See pp. 32-37 of the Manual here:

 

Service Manual

 

Hard drive and SSD removal is classed as a customer self-repair item.
