Solution:1

I have installed Ubuntu Desktop 14.0.4.3 LTS on my new HP Envy machine which has quad core i7(skylake) working fine without any issues. Please give it a try.

This is my laptop configuration on which i have installed Ubuntu Desktop 14.04.3 LTS alongside Windows 10. I had just upgrade to Kernel 4.2.5 as wifi(Intel AC 3165) was not supported. And also get nvidia graphics driver from ppa. Everything else is OOTB Ubuntu installation. Working fine.
