I'm not entirely sure what you mean here? To put Ubuntu on the hard drive, you'll need to install Ubuntu onto a spare hard drive on another computer and then the hard drive into the B40-30. Presto, you now have control of the OS. Also, apparently if your hardware warranty from Lenovo expires, ZVRS expects you to not renew the warranty, stating that they cover the warranty themselves. Right... like I'm going to trust that the hardware's covered when the warranty's expired?
