    1. Does upgrading the hard drive on a MacBook Pro void its warranty?

    2. Once I install the new hard drive, how do I install OS X on it?

    Thanks!

    1. No, unless you damage something while doing it. Obviously, the self-installed drive is not covered by Apple.

    2. Use the grey install discs that came with your Mac and simply hold the alt key and boot from the DVD and follow the on-screen instructions.
