    Re: before installing ubuntu

    You probably need to update UEFI & SSD firmware first.

    There seem to be some issues on kernels & Xe graphics. A flag needs to be set when compiling kernel and many do not yet have that.

    Re: Dual boot, cant access windows.

    Boot-repair is downloaded using Internet.
