    As it is a spinning SATA disk, not a solid state drive there is every chance it will work fine with Ubuntu which I assume you will be adding to the system perhaps in dual boot? If you are not going to install Ubuntu this really is the wrong forum to ask!

    Some very recent model SSD drives need firmware upgrades to work with Linux but that is very unlikely with this disk especially if using Windows.
