I'm starting research components for my new computer which should work with Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10 at the same time. But in the specification motherboard, I saw only Windows 10 64-bit support.

Something like this

In Operating System section, only Windows. Can I install Ubuntu with this motherboard or motherboards with similar characteristics in Operating System section (Without Linux)?

If you want to be 100% sure, buy a computer which is certified to be Ubuntu compatible (https://certification.ubuntu.com).

However, I have not encountered a single computer in my life on which I would not be able to install linux. You can be pretty sure that motherboard will support Ubuntu. The most problems I have had with linux support were various WiFi adapters, where I had to compile kernel modules in order to make them work. I would not give to much attention to what is supported, as I am pretty sure linux will work.
