    Did you find a solution? I can start kali with my usb drive but want to create a dualboot with windows 8. I noticed a lot of trouble with other kali dualbooters so is it recommended to do this or not? Greetz!

    If UEFI is disabled, it means that Legacy will be the default setup (bios-mbr). Otherwise, it just won't boot.

    Luck.
