Installing Ubuntu on an AMD HP Laptop

I decided to try installing a Linux distro after my Windows 10 image
started malfunctioning. I didn't want to have to lose all my data, so I
wanted to see if using Linux would allow me to access all of my files
and put them on an external hard drive.
I downloaded Ubuntu 18.04 Iso and the Rufus utility. I put the Iso image
on my flash drive using this utility.
From past experience with an AMD HP computer, i found that pressing the
escape key immediately after turning on the computer, and then pressing
F9 would bring me to the list of boot options. From here I pressed down
arrow to select USB media, and pressed enter. At this point I don't know
what happened next because I don't know if Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit AMD comes
with any screen reader, or what the commands would be to launch it. I
used the Microsoft seeing AI app to read what was on the screen.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
