I should add that you will not be able to use grub for dualbooting *unless* you modify or re-install one of the OSes, so that it boots using the same process as the other. On Sunday May 05, 2019, Randy Goldenberg wrote:

Thank you for the information.

Your Linux installation boots legacy BIOS, while your new Windows installation boots UEFI. That being the case, you will not be able to use grub for dualbooting.

 one more thing, when, in the /sys/firmware directory, I run the "ls -a"
 command, I get " .  ..  acpi  dmi  memmap".  I don' t know if that is
 useful for you in this case.
