GNU, Ubuntu and Linux kernel developers say that HP firmware for UEFI BIOS is buggy. There are no problem with installation in legacy mode. But when I use UEFI session, GRUB-installer error will occur.
There is apport for F40 version of UEFI BIOS: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1835664
There is apport for F52 version of UEFI BIOS: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1838017

I'm sorry, but we here are not equipped to provide detailed Linux support.
HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with Linux, or add a Linux OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- as HP provides Linux assistance only on Redhat and then only to commercial customers.
The primary "challenge" to using Linux on any HP PC is the availability of Linux drivers. Any hardware that does not work will then range from simple (if there are Linux drivers available) to impossible (if there are NO Linux drivers available) to fix.
Since HP does not provide Linux drivers, your best bet for Linux support is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are using.

I regretted having purchased a HP device, because there any warranties for using Windows or GNU/Linux on it.
I said that this problem applies GNU/Linux distributions generally, so your clients can't use RHLE too.
GNU, Linux, Canonical, Red Hat developers can't solve this problem, because it's specific for proprietary laptop firmware.
