A few month ago i was trying to install ubuntu on this laptop for start using it and see why too much people use it and i read that is good to learno how to use it for my courrier.

I had too much troubles trying to install bc first i run it but at the second time it just freeze on the boot menu so i had to go back to windows, i read that the problem is because the dual graphics.

 

So i could not install ubuntu , now i discovered this forum i wanna know if is possible to install ubuntu in my laptop. I found drivers that amd provides for my laptop, those are the dirver i am talking about https://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Ubuntu%20x86%2064  designated for Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, 14.04.2, they were launched on 2015 so i dont know if they will work.

 

So i want to know, if i install ubuntu (Ubuntu 17.10 | Ubuntu ) on my laptop will i be able to use those drivers? or what should i do for run it without problem with dual graphics ?
