Lenovo is saying that the system board replacement doesn't fall under the warranty because the problem originated with the USB ports (which aren't covered). So... Can broken USB ports cause the system drive to go bad?
Damaged USB ports can do a great deal of damage, as you've seen.
It seems to me the mainboard should be covered under warranty, as should the USB ports themselves. If the damage was an accident on your part, then no, it would not be covered.
