installing ubuntu on notebook which has no driver in hp.com

HP Recommended
HP 250 G5 Notebook PC

I want to install ubuntu (latest version) on my laptop. but when I look up for drivers I found out that there is no driver available for this product and OS on HP site. I didn't find my laptop in this page Ubuntu on HP Models neither.

Now I'm worried if I install ubuntu I get into trouble about drivers. my laptop is "HP 250 G5 Notebook PC".

Is there any way to be sure, ubuntu will be run on my laptop with no problem and I can use all of my hardwares ?

Thanks in advance

HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that or add a different OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that other OS -- as HP then provides no assistance on that.

Win10 PCs nearly all use UEFI and that poses special problems for installing Linux distros: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2147295

Your best bet for Linux support, since HP does not provide Linux drivers, is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are trying to install -- in this case, the Ubuntu Forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/

Good Luck
