Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

IF you force your BIOS/UEFI to change to Legacy, Win10 will not longer boot.

 

Is that what you want?

 

If you're changing your BIOS to dual boot a Linux distro -- DO NOT DO THAT!  As then, you will not be able to reboot back into Win10, only into Linux.

Actually I want to change to Legacy because i want to do some "experiments" with the tablet using Linux. At the end, legacy or UEFI, i can reinstall windows without problem...

OK, then in that case, see if you can boot the Tablet from a USB containing Linux -- to try to run in Live mode to see if the hardware is detected and working drivers are installed.

 

Tablets are notoriously hard to install Linux on since most of them don't allow booting from external media.
