Assuming you want to install Ubuntu on the entire harddisk and thus 
replace Windows, you should let the partitioner create an EFI-partition 
as the first one (scroll down the list of file system options) - For 
example sda1 (primary partition, 200 MB). Ubuntu will then install 
grub-efi on that partition. Other partitions as usual, for example sda2 
= / , sda3 = /home and sda4 = swap. Then let the HP boot from UEFI.
