Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

I don't use Linux. Have tried it but could never get good graphics drivers. Nvidia GPU fans would spin out of control.

 

An aborted Linux installation will happen if the Linux version does not have Microsoft signed boot loader files.

 

You would have to modify the BIOS to disable Secure boot and enable Legacy boot. Secure boot stops unsigned code from running at boot time.

 

Instructions to disable Secure boot can be reviewed at this HP Support site (Link).

 

Ubuntu may install a boot loader that may mess up booting to Windows. Doing a dual boot setup may be problematic.

 

Going back to windows may require removing the Linux boot loader.

 

Regards
