Otherwise it depends on implementation of UEFI by particular

As I suspected ... thanks, Vojtěch!

Just a note for completeness: if You have default Windows installation and
then change UEFI to
legacy, the partition won't be bootable/accessible. But similar will be truth
for Linux - GRUB
won't be able to boot after such change.


What about if you change to Legacy (which I suppose means turn UEFI off)
before you install Linux?

And if you are able to install with UEFI turned off, would you recommend
that?

It seems to me that UEFI solves mostly imaginary problems, and is as likely to
be just another attack vector as any solution to any real problem.
