Question Ubuntu install problem

I decided to install Ubuntu on an HP laptop, running Windows 10 pro.
I followed the directions from the Ubuntu website, and after a period of a dark screen, I booted into Windows, and my Internet access was disabled. I was able to do a System Restore to get the Internet up. What am I doing wrong??

A windows 10 pre-installed system is undoubtedly using UEFI. Dual booting with UEFI and Ubuntu is explained at the link below. Compare the information there to what you did. I don't use UEFI but have read numerous posts at different sites about HP not following UEFI standards. If you want more detailed information to post, go to the site below and get the boot repair script and select the option to Create BootInfoSummary and post a link to the output here. You haven't given enough information for anyone to do anything but guess.

You can press F9 at the start of the boot process. This will bring up the UEFI boot manager with a list of installed boot loaders. You should see both windows and ubuntu listed, provided you installed ubuntu correctly. If your HP is using InSyde firmware, it is not compliant with industry standards. It is hard coded to look for the windows boot manager, usually located in /dev/sda2 partition. Running efibootmgr from linux to change the boot order does not work, and InSyde does not provide a set up option to change it. You have to press F9 every time you boot. You can also google Rod Smith books to learn about UEFI.
