Warranty 2nd HDD

Jump to solution

Hello, I have a precision 5520 with a SSD M.2 and I'm thinking of adding a second HDD in the free slot. I've read an old post about this procedure and, in theory, there aren't any warranty issues if I simply remove the new HDD when I will send the laptop to Assistence. Can you confirm that?

thank you

Correct.  There are only two things to be aware of here:

- The Dell warranty won't cover the 2nd hard drive since you're purchasing it yourself. The only possible exceptions are that if you buy it from Dell, it may come with its own warranty, and sometimes products purchased through Dell specify that when used in/with a Dell system, the product inherits the system's warranty.

- If you break anything on the system while installing the second drive yourself, that damage would obviously not be covered by your system warranty.
