Asked by SADASHIV SAHOO on 2019-07-24

Hi,
I bought new Dell Inspiron 15 5580 nVidia GP108 [GeForce MX150] with Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Whiskey Lake), of windows-10 version, as in region of India ubuntu pre-installed version was not available.

Now, I want to install ubuntu 16.10 LTS or 18.10 LTS in this system from the standard ubuntu image as a single OS (not dual boot).
please confirm me on this regard, that whether it will support fully or not ?

I'm in wait of your reply

best,
sadashiv

Hello,
16.10 / 18.10 are no longer supported [1], as this system was certified with the pre-installed image, there is no guarantee that it will work flawlessly with stock image.

Please feel free to give 18.04.2 / 19.04 a try, you can test it with a LiveUSB first.
Thanks
