    Link is not always the same, is this yours?

    Locked-ESP detected.
    Several others with HPs have not had that issue, but others have. Not sure how it is occurring.
    There are several work arounds. Often just best to fully backup efi partition, erase it & recreate it.

    grub-efi fails to install with Input/output error - locked efi

    Yes I think that was my link
    I just installed Ubuntu on its own, erased windows 8 from the PC. Seemed the logical solution and is working fine
    Thanks

    Glad you have it working. Are you in UEFI mode or BIOS/CSM mode?
