The best is to use lspci -v (verbose) with the system and kernel where 
it isn't supported. Maybe there are differences in lspci-version and kernel.
You can run dmesg anywhere. It is a console program which outputs the 
bootlog to STDOUT.
But you have to run it after boot of Ubuntu in Ubuntu for that purpose.

Maybe a started documentation browser after first (and only after first) 
login with introducing information would be nice. I hope MS has no 
patent on this kind of information to new users ;o)
