1) How did you create a bootable USB?
2) I would begin by disconnecting Drive 1 with Kali Linux on it and install Windows to Drive 2 only.

yes your right i was thinking about dual boot, windows on one drive can't mess up Linux on another .

I have formated the usb into ntfs filesystem on gparted and added boot flag to usb, then i have mounted the iso file, and copy the iso content to usb.

@CptCharis did post a video of approach you can try :


i've been playing with grub and found this handy : https://sourceforge.net/projects/su...1/super_grub2_disk_hybrid_2.04s1.iso/download

it even found elilo.efi on my slackware and could boot it up.
i want boot installation iso not the entire system
