You need to contact HP and get drivers from them.

Firstly....never install an OS onto a laptop/notebook unless the laptop manufacturer sold it in that configuration....and if you do it anyway expect for there to be problems/inconsistencies/oddities that may never be corrected.

Secondly, I would highly recommend that you restrict your driver downloads to the manufacturer of your laptop's/notebook's support site.  There are a lot of manufacturers that modify the reference/standard driver package to suite their non-reference hardware components......and if you download the drivers from AMD directly anyway expect for there to be problems/inconsistencies/oddities that may never be corrected.

Please remember your laptop/notebook was not built by AMD or Microsoft/Unix/Linux.....don't look for software/drivers from them....look to who actually built your laptop/notebook for all of your needs concerning your laptop/notebook.

sorry, but this sounds ignorant to me ...

Why shouldn't i install an OS onto a laptop which is technically supporting that piece of software?

It's just a thing about SOFTWARE, and drivers count as software ... and if amd-drivers are called "reference"-drivers, whats the excuse of supporting switchable graphics from AMDs side and if problems occur its the hardware-manufacturers fault?!? i dont see the point why everytime AMD is making some graphics into "legacy-support"-cards they only make that excuse "its legacy, buy new one or stay with old software"

It isn't even a new feature nor is it another performance boost, ... its BUGFIXING because in prev versions it worked perfectly, no it doesn't. It smells like a bug, it IS a bug, and AMD seems not to worry about the customers being happy with amd-products; it happens with HD2000-cards, now it happens with HD4000-cards, thats not fair.

The only workaround seems to drop AMD-graphics and switch to NVIDIA again.

 

EDIT: im also a hp pavilion g6 user, so i have the same issue and im sad about the made excuses here (g6-1025sg if its important to you ... just one year old)
