    Good evening Legly !

    Legacy mode is already out of date and is being removed from current bios.
    Some models are still supported.
    To do this, you must first create the superuser password.

    I created a password and disabled the security boot.

    The devices are only coming with uefi. Legacy mode is no longer being made available by any manufacturer.

    I understand.

    But what can I do if I want a working dual boot system?

    Now:
    Windows 10 is located on the SSD.
    There is files on the HDD.


    Idea:
    Windows 10 stays on the SSD.

    The HDD (due to its size) is separated by about 200 GB. That would be other OS. (Kali Linux or Arch Linux, but I better prefer is Kali Linux.)
    The rest (about 800 GB) would be used by Windows for data storage in the same way.


    Thank you for your help!

    The first thing you should do is to enable safeboot in msconfig on windows and restart your computer. Then, uninstall the intel rapid storage driver and change the sata mode to ahci no bios.

    Both Windows and Linux systems can be installed on a Uefi basis perfectly.
    To perform a dual-boot, the 2 must be on the same boot disk for Grub to identify them correctly without requiring further intervention.
    But before, what is your level of knowledge in Linux systems?

    I'm at a beginner level, but I'm interesting the cyber security.

    Beginner level there is no adequate knowledge to work a distro like Kali.
    It requires a lot of advanced knowledge in programming, shell script and terminal commands.
    So I recommend that you use it only in live mode.

    I understand. However, it does not start in live mode.

    You probably did not convert the usb stick to gpt and did not format it in fat32.
