People who can't research themselves how to install Linux should not use Linux. Especially not Kali.
Have you tried reading the Documentation? https://www.kali.org/docs/installation/
hamid here is what I found which may help. https://www.kali.org/docs/installation/dual-boot-kali-with-windows/
Chris C. & BroFar Can not find anything for my problem. Thats are dual boot in same hdd but different drive.
hamid if I understand you correctly the issue is having two operating systems on a single hard drive? To do that you have to partition your hard drive. Linux has a good program with GUI for this: gparted. You'll find a lot of tutorials on how to partition your drive. There are two main things to consider: 1. How many partitions do you need and how big should the partitions be? (Notice that Linux systems usually use separate partitions for the OS and programs and for data. You may also want to create a swap partition, especially if you have limited RAM.) 2. What file system should the partitions have? In particular if you separate OS and data -- as you should -- you'll have to decide if you want a single data partition that is accessible from both OSs, in which case you need to make sure that you're using a file system for the data partition that is supported by both. Here's a link to one tutorial: https://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-disk-partitioning-for-linux-and-windows-dual-booting/
If, however, it is about having them on separate hard drives all you need to do is make sure you have a properly installed and configured boot loader. Linux usually takes care of this on installation. https://www.geckoandfly.com/32417/dual-boot-windows-linux/
Keep in mind that being able to find this kind of information yourself is essential for any Linux user. There is a saying: "Linux is an OS for people who enjoy spending hours searching through obscure internet fora looking for solutions to problems that shouldn't exist in the first place." https://xkcd.com/979 And Kali has a lot of potentially dangerous tools that you should only use if you know what you're doing (and what is legal and what is not).
Simon Sauter i have one ssd ( installed windows) and one hdd ( using caddy instead of dvd rom). Your links are about one hdd for win and linux in different drives. i used easybcd before, but it did not work. When using easybcd and choose kali linux just a black screen is shown that have one word (grub) and stop there. A strang thing is that i format and clean my hdd but when install kali in part of bootloader detect windows vista.
grub is a bootloader that is commonly used with linux. Normally you should see a list of all installed systems to chose from.
Maybe this helps? https://www.systranbox.com/how-to-install-kali-linux-using-easybcd/
Exactly this is my problem, i cant see any operating system Just windows. Where must be install grub bootloader ? I tried to install in hdd and in separeted partition of hdd ( boot). But dont work in both of them
Did you make sure that your hdd is set as a boot medium in bios?
I can see model of hdd in main page, but cant see in boot menu.
You should be able to add it to the list of boot media in your bios. (Although I don't know if only the drive with the bootloader needs to be there or all drives that have an OS.)
Another thing to check for is whether your kali partition has a bootable file system. You should be able to check this with your partition manager.
Why it is not in my boot menu? Is dvd rom same as hdd caddy?
I don't think so. I think normally the bios should recognise it as an hdd.
I want to use my hdd instead of ssd and turn on laptop, if all thing is ok so i can use kali. Is a good way !?
This looks like it is the same scenario except with Ubuntu instead of kali (but both are derived from Debian): https://askubuntu.com/questions/726972/dual-boot-windows-10-and-linux-ubuntu-on-separate-hard-drives
This is with uefi mode, my system is in legacy mode and not support secure boot
